Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7472) RPC client should deal with the IP address changes
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2011 21:33:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7472?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13079042#comment-13079042
] 

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-7472:
-------------------------------------

+1 Minor concern about round-robin dns causing connection attempts forever.

Just so everyone understands the caveats:
# A process that is running when the IP changes will reconnect and continue to use its tokens
since it knows how it original contacted the service -- new behavior
# New processes using a token cache (ie. mapreduce) will be unable to find their tokens since
the token is keyed on IP -- same as before
# Job tracker will be unable to renew tokens when the ip changes -- same as before.

What it means is this change is useful in cases such as the NN IP changes.  Existing mappers
will reconnect & complete, but mappers spawned after the IP change won't find their tokens.

> The current RPC client implementation and the client-side callers assume that the hostname-address
mappings of servers never change. The resolved address is stored in an immutable InetSocketAddress
object above/outside RPC, and the reconnect logic in the RPC Connection implementation also
trusts the resolved address that was passed down.
> If the NN suffers a failure that requires migration, it may be started on a different
node with a different IP address. In this case, even if the name-address mapping is updated
in DNS, the cluster is stuck trying old address until the whole cluster is restarted.
> The RPC client-side should detect this situation and exit or try to recover.
> Updating ConnectionId within the Client implementation may get the system work for the
moment, there always is a risk of the cached address:port become connectable again unintentionally.
The real solution will be notifying upper layer of the address change so that they can re-resolve
and retry or re-architecture the system as discussed in HDFS-34. 
> For 0.20 lines, some type of compromise may be acceptable. For example, raise a custom
exception for some well-defined high-impact upper layer to do re-resolve/retry, while other
will have to restart.  For TRUNK, the HA work will most likely determine what needs to be
done.  So this Jira won't cover the solutions for TRUNK.
