Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8500) RollingRestart utility at regionserver level
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 17:31:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8500?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13651090#comment-13651090

Rishit Shroff commented on HBASE-8500:

Thanks Stack,

The idea is almost the same, the difference is that of disabling load balancer vs blacklisting
a region server. In 0.89 fb load balancer is responsible for assigning regions to preferred
nodes when a region server dies. So if we disable the load balancer during a rolling restart,
and some other region server dies during that time, then the regions won't failover and get
reassigned. Because of this limitation in 0.89 fb, we went with the idea of blacklisting the
region server under restart so that the load balancer is on and working fine. Only the region
server under restart is not assigned new regions by the load balancer.

I will take a look at the script and check if I can integrate any part of it into this idea.

> With the option of blacklisting a region server from getting assigned new regions by
the master, we need to have a utility which encapsulates this and uses it for rolling restart
of a hbase cluster. The JIRA is to create a utility which restarts a single region server
> 1. blacklisting the region server
> 2. moving all the regions one by one
> 3. restart the region server process
> 4. moving all the regions back
> 5. removing the region server from blacklist
> Along with this, the utility should also be able to estimate the total outage observed
from client perspective.
