Subject RE: Specifying location of persistent storage location
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2017 09:07:15 GMT
Hi Yakov,

Yes, Dmitriy walked me through how setting the LocalHost results in the
folder name for the persistent data to be fixed. I also fixed the port
number as this is also an aspect of the folder name.

Is there a known issue with IPv6 interfaces on a server hosting Ignite?

Pavel Tupitsin, can you please check that
org.apache.ignite.configuration.IgniteConfiguration#setConsistentId has it
platform counterpart? I could not find it.

Raymond, you can explicitly set a bind address for Ignite with public
string Localhost { get; set; }. This will make consistent ID to use only 1
address. Also I would suggest you disable ipv6 if you don't use it.

Igniters, I think Ignite needs to do these checks and reports:

1. Output the store path and tell its (1) size or state that it is empty
and (2) last data file modification date.

2. Output warning if there are other non-empty storage folders under work
directory with their sizes and dates.

I set up an XML file based on the default one and added the two elements
you noted.

However, this has brought up an issue in that the XML file and an
IgniteConfiguration instance can’t both be provided to the Ignition.Start()
call. So I changed it to use the DiscoverSPI aspect of IgniteConfiguration
and set LocalAddress to “” and LocalPort to 47500.

This did change the name of the persistence folder to be “127_0_0_1_47500”
as you suggested.

While this resolves my current issue with the folder name changing, it
still seems fragile as network configuration aspects of the server Ignite
is running on have a direct impact on an internal aspect of its
configuration (ie: the location where to store the persisted data). A DHCP
IP lease renewal or an internal DNS domain change or an internal IT
department change to using IPv6 addressing (among other things) could cause
problems when a node restarts and decides the location of its data is

Do you know how GridGain manage this in their enterprise deployments using

It’s possible this could cause change in the folder name, though I do not
think this is an issue in my case. Below are three different folder names I
have seen. All use the same port number, but differ in terms of the IPV6
address (I have also seen variations where the IPv6 address is absent in
the folder name).




I start the nodes in my local setup in a well defined order so I would
expect the port to be the same. I did once start a second instance by
mistake and did see the port number incremented in the folder name.

Are you suggesting the two changes you note below will result in the same
folder name being chosen every time, unlike above?

Yes, exactly. My suggestions will ensure that you explicitly bind to the
same address every time.

I definitely have not had more than one server node running at the same
time (though there have been more than one client node running on the same

I suspect what is happening is that one or more of the network interfaces
on the machine can have their address change dynamically. What I thought of
as a GUID is actually (I think) an IPv6 address attached to one of the
interfaces. This aspect of the folder name tends to come and go.

You can see from the folder names below that there are quite a number of
addresses involved. This seems to be fragile (and I certainly see the name
of this folder changing frequently), so I think being able to set it to
something concrete would be a good idea.

I think I understand what is happening. Ignite starts off with a default
port, and then starts incrementing it with every new node started on the
same host. Perhaps you start server and client nodes in different order
sometimes which causes server to bind to a different port.

To make sure that your server node binds to the same port all the time, you
should try specifying it explicitly in the server node configuration, like
so (forgive me if this snippet does not compile):

*<property name="discoverySpi">         <bean
 <property name="localPort" value="40123"/>         </bean></property>*

Please make sure that the client nodes either don't have any port
configured, or have a different port configured.

You should also make sure that Ignite always binds to the desired local
interface on client and server nodes, by specifying
IgniteConfiguration.setLocalHost(...) property, or like so in XML:

*<property name="localHost" value="my.local.ip.address"/>*

If my theory is correct, Ignite should make sure that the clients and
servers cannot theoretically bind to the same port. I will double check it
with the community and file a ticket if needed.
