Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-12954) Ability impaired using HBase on multihomed hosts
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2015 21:35:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12954?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14301975#comment-14301975
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-12954:
----------------------------------------

This is similar of course to issues operators face on EC2 clouds, where the reverse resolved
internal DNS names are of no use unless all clients are also using the internal resolvers.

So like Stack suggested, we need to disconnect the hostnames HBase uses internally from those
posted to ZK for external consumption. One option could be to do it like HDFS rack mapping:
a configuration property specifies a script that the master will execute to map IP addresses
to internal and external names. It takes as input the IP address and a flag that specifies
"internal" or "external". The results from executing the script with "internal" would be handed
to regionservers as their identity, the results from executing with "external" would be advertised
in ZooKeeper.

> For HBase clusters running on unusual networks (such as NAT'd cloud environments or physical
machines with multiple IP's per network interface) it would be ideal to have a way to both
specify:
> # which IP interface to which HBase master or region-server will bind
> # what hostname HBase will advertise in Zookeeper both for a master or region-server
process
> While efforts such as HBASE-8640 go a long way to normalize these two sources of information,
it is not possible in the current design of the properties available to an administrator for
these to be unambiguously specified.
> One has been able to request {{hbase.master.ipc.address}} or {{hbase.regionserver.ipc.address}}
but one can not specify the desired HBase {{hbase.master.hostname}}. (It was removed in HBASE-1357,
further I am unaware of a region-server equivalent.)
> I use a configuration management system to generate all of my configuration files on
a per-machine basis. As such, an option to generate a file specifying exactly which hostname
to use would be helpful.
> Today, specifying the bind address for HBase works and one can use an HBase-only DNS
for faking what to put in Zookeeper but this is far from ideal. Network interfaces have no
intrinsic IP address, nor hostname. Specifing a DNS server is awkward as the DNS server may
differ from the system's resolver and is a single IP address. Similarly, on hosts which use
a transient VIP (e.g. through keepalived) for other services, it means there's a seemingly
non-deterministic hostname choice made by HBase depending on the state of the VIP at daemon
start-up time.
> I will attach two networking examples I use which become very difficult to manage under
the current properties.
