Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-6397) topology script called with host names instead of IP addresses

topology script called with host names instead of IP addresses

                 Key: HADOOP-6397
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6397
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: util
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
            Reporter: Christian Kunz

According to the 'Hadoop Rack Awareness' section on http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/r0.20.0/cluster_setup.html
the script/program topology.script.file.name can assume that names are passed in as IP addresses.

This seems to work for hdfs, but the rack-awareness of the JobTracker does not always work,
depending on the hostnames of the cluster, because of a bug in the method normalizeHostName
of org.apache.hadoop.net.NetUtils.java:

It returns the host name as-is when it decides that the string passed-in is already an IP
but actually it checks whether the string starts with a valid hex character!
There is no need to check at all, because InetAddress.getByName is smart enough to not do
a dns lookup when the name is an IP address.
