HDFS Federation

HDFS Federation

Hi All,

Can anyone please share me the HDFS Federation configuration details and also how to test my setup is working fine or not.

1.If one namespace goes down, will the data be avialable to other namespace or do I need to configure HA for respective namespace?

Find the link to the documentation,but I think HDP doesn't support HDFS federation as yet

Re: HDFS Federation

@Mohamed Farook

As mentioned by @Geoffrey Shelton Okot, Federation isn't yet supported by HDP. you can refer apache doc http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/Federation.html for the details.

Any idea if Hortonworks plans on supporting HDFS Federation or are they waiting for the new HDFS architecture to come out (object store)?

My answer to @Mohamed Farook is still valid!

Unfortunately NOT in the current latest HDP release.Its a community feature not yet ported to HDP.
