Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2467) HA Support for Metastore Server
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 05:25:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2467?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13150243#comment-13150243
] 

Andreas Neumann commented on HIVE-2467:
---------------------------------------

If Hadoop .23 relies on ZooKeeper, then I would hope that ZK is already baked in... otherwise
I would tend to think, if ZK is tolerably secure for Hadoop, then it should be tolerable for
Hive/HCatalog. After all, afaik both Hive and HCatalog piggy back on HDFS for security.

But I like the idea of having different implementations for the TokenStore, even though my
preferred deployment would be ZooKeeper-based.

> We require HA deployment for metastore server for HCatalog:
> * Multiple server instances run behind VIP
> * Database provides HA
> Metastore server instances will need to be able to share any state required for VIP outside
RDBMS. As of Hive 0.8 affected conversational state that needs to support VIP/HA setup is
limited to current delegation tokens. Is this correct?
> We are planning to use ZooKeeper to share current delegation tokens and master keys between
nodes of the VIP. ZK is already (optionally) used by Hive for concurrency control. Access
to ZK would be limited on the network level or in the future, when ZooKeeper supports security,
through Kerberos, similar to NN access.
> Currently Hive taps into Hadoop core security delegation token support through extension
of
> org.apache.hadoop.security.token.delegation.AbstractDelegationTokenSecretManager<TokenIdent>
> A solution could amend the Hive specific extension to support:
> * Pluggable delegation token and master key store (ZooKeeper as alternative for in-memory
AbstractDelegationTokenSecretManager)
> * Delegation token retrieval from token store when not found in memory (wrap/extend retrievePassword(...))
> * Cancellation of token in token store
> * Purging of expired tokens from token store
