  • 1. ISSN: XXXX-XXXX Volume X, Issue X, Month Year Significance of HADOOP Distributed File System Vivekanand. S. Reshmi Dept of Computer Science and Engineering BTL Institute of Technology Bangalore, India Ravikumar.reshmi@gmail.com Abstract: A Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is designed to store very large data sets reliably and to stream those data sets at high bandwidth to user applications. By distributing storage and computation across many servers, the resource can grow with demand while remaining economical at every size. An important characteristic of Hadoop is the partition- ing of data and computation across many (thousands) of hosts, and executing application computations in parallel close to their data. A Hadoop cluster scales computation capacity, storage capacity and IO bandwidth by simply add- ing commodity servers. Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) are the most common file system deployed in large scale distributed systems such as Face book, Google and Yahoo today. Introduction The Hadoop platform [1][5]provides both hadoop distributed file system (HDFS) and computational capabilities (Map Reduce).[2] Hadoop is an Apache project all components are available via the Apache open source license. The newest Hadoop versions are capable of storing petabytes of da- ta.HDFS stores file system metadata and application data separately As in GFS. It is designed to run on clusters of commodity hardware. HDFS relaxes a few requirements to enable streaming access to the file system data. Hadoop is a Distributed parallel fault tolerant file system. It is designed to reliably store very large files across machines in a large cluster. It is inspired by the Google File System. Hadoop DFS stores each file as a sequence of blocks; all blocks in a file except the last block are the same size. Blocks belonging to a file are replicated for fault toler- ance. The block size and replication factor are configurable per file. In a distributed system even if we decide to deploy dedicated high performance machines which are really cost- ly, faults or disruptions are not frequent. So forerunners like Google decided to use commodity hardware which is ubiq- uitous and very cost effective , but to use such hardware they have to make a design choice of treating faults or disruptions as regular situation and system should able to recover from such failures. Hadoop developed on similar design choices to handle faults. So comparing luster, pvfs which system assumes faults are infrequent and needs manual intervention to ensure continued services on other hand Hadoop turns out to be very robust and fault tolerant option. Hadoop ensures that few failures in the system won’t disrupt continued ser- vice of data through automatic replication and transfer of responsibilities from failed machines to live machines in Hadoop farm transparently. Though it’s mentioned that GFS has same capabilities since its not available to other compa- nies those capabilities cannot be availed. A. Meaning of hadoop Hadoop is an Open Source implementation of a large-scale batch processing system. Hadoop is a top-level Apache project being built and used by a global community of contributors, written in the Java programming language. It provides a distributed file system and a framework for the analysis and transformation of very large data sets using the Map Reduce paradigm. Hadoop framework is written in Java, it allows developers to deploy custom- written pro- grams coded in Java or any other language to process data in a parallel fashion across hundreds or thousands of commodi- ty servers An important characteristic of Hadoop is the parti- tioning of data and computation across many (thousands) of hosts, and executing application computations in parallel close to their data.

International Journal of Innovatory research in Engineering and Technology - IJIRET ISSN: XXXX-XXXX Volume X, Issue X, Month Year 22 Fig1.Hadoop systems[6] The table 1 shows the components of hadoop. Hadoop is an Apache project; all components are available via the Apache open source license. Yahoo! has developed and contributed to 80% of the core of Hadoop (HDFS and Map Reduce). HBase was originally developed at Table1 .Hadoop project components [4] Power set, now a department at Microsoft. Hive was originated and developed at Facebook. Pig, Zookeeper, and Chukwa were originated and developed at Yahoo! Avro was originated at Yahoo! and is being co- developed with Cloudera. HDFS is the file system compo- nent of Hadoop. While the interface to HDFS is patterned after the UNIX file system, faithfulness to standards was sacrificed in favor of improved performance for the applica- tions at hand. B.HDFS architecture The Hadoop Distributed File System [3] is a distributed file system designed to run on commodity hardware. It has many similarities with existing distributed file systems. However, the differences from other distributed file systems are signif- icant. HDFS is highly fault-tolerant and is designed to be deployed on low-cost hardware. HDFS provides high throughput access to application data and is suitable for ap- plications that have large data sets. HDFS stores file system metadata and application data separately. A normal file sys- tem is separated into several pieces called blocks, which are the smallest units that can be read or written. Normally the default size is a few kilobytes. HDFS also has blocks, but of a much larger size, 64 MB bytes default. The reason for that is to minimize the costs of seeks for finding the start of the block. With the abstraction of blocks it is possible to create files that are larger than any single disk in the network. HDFS architecture consists of NameNode, DataNode, and HDFS Client. Fig2: HDFS architecture[3] C. Name node The HDFS namespace is a hierarchy of files and directories. Files and directories are represented on the NameNode[3] by inodes, which record attributes like permissions, modifica- tion and access times, namespace and disk space quotas. The file content is split into large blocks and each block of the file is independently replicated at multiple DataNodes. The NameNode maintains the namespace tree and the mapping of file blocks to DataNodes. An HDFS client wanting to read a file first contacts the NameNode for the locations of data blocks comprising the file and then reads block contents from the DataNode closest to the client. When writing data, the client requests the NameNode to nominate a suite of three DataNodes to host the block replicas. The client then writes data to the DataNodes in a pipeline fashion. The cur- rent design has a single NameNode for each cluster. The cluster can have thousands of DataNodes and tens of thou- sands of HDFS clients per cluster, as each DataNode may execute multiple application tasks concurrently. HDFS keeps the entire namespace in RAM. The inode data and the list of blocks belonging to each file comprise the metadata of the name system called the image. The persistent record of the
  • 3. International Journal of Innovatory research in Engineering and Technology - IJIRET ISSN: XXXX-XXXX Volume X, Issue X, Month Year 23 image stored in the local host’s native files system is called a checkpoint. The NameNode also stores the modification log of the image called the journal in the local host’s native file system. For improved durability, redundant copies of the checkpoint and journal can be made at other servers. During restarts the NameNode restores the namespace by reading the namespace and replaying the journal. The locations of block replicas may change over time and are not part of the persistent checkpoint. D.DATA NODE Each block replica on a DataNode is represented by two files in the local host’s native file system. The first file contains the data itself and the second file is block’s metadata includ- ing checksums for the block data and the block’s generation stamp. The size of the data file equals the actual length of the block and does not require extra space to round it up to the nominal block size as in traditional file systems. Thus, if a block is half full it needs only half of the space of the full block on the local drive. During startup each DataNode con- nects to the NameNode and performs a handshake. The pur- pose of the handshake is to verify the namespace ID and the software version of the DataNode. If either does not match that of the NameNode the DataNode automatically shuts down. The namespace ID is assigned to the file system in- stance when it is formatted. The namespace ID is persistent- ly stored on all nodes of the cluster. Nodes with a different namespace ID will not be able to join the cluster, thus pre- serving the integrity of the file system. The consistency of software versions is important because incompatible version may cause data corruption or loss, and on large clusters of thousands of machines it is easy to overlook nodes that did not shut down properly prior to the software upgrade or were not available during the upgrade. A DataNode that is newly initialized and without any namespace ID is permitted to join the cluster and receive the cluster’s namespace ID. After the handshake the DataNode registers with the NameNode. DataNodes persistently store their unique storage IDs. The storage ID is an internal identifier of the DataNode, which makes it recognizable even if it is restarted with a different IP address or port. The storage ID is assigned to the DataNode when it registers with the NameNode for the first time and never changes after that. A DataNode identifies block replicas in its possession to the NameNode by sending a block report. A block report contains the block id, the gen- eration stamp and the length for each block replica the serv- er hosts. The first block report is sent immediately after the DataNode registration. Subsequent block reports are sent every hour and provide the NameNode with an up-todate view of where block replicas are located on the cluster. D.HDFC CLIENT User applications access the file system using the HDFS client, a code library that exports the HDFS file system inter- face. HDFS supports operations to read, write and delete files, and operations to create and delete directories. When an application reads a file, the HDFS client first asks the NameNode for the list of DataNodes that host replicas of the blocks of the file. It then contacts a DataNode directly and requests the transfer of the desired block. When a client writes, it first asks the NameNode to choose DataNodes to host replicas of the first block of the file. When the first block is filled, the client requests new DataNodes to be cho- sen to host replicas of the next block. The interactions among the client, the NameNode and the DataNodes are illustrated in Fig.2 HDFS cluster has a single name node that manages the file system namespace. The current limitation that a cluster can contain only a single name node results in the following is- sues: 1. Scalability: Name node maintains the entire file system metadata in memory. The size of the metadata is limited by the physical memory available on the node. To address these issues one encourages larger block sizes, creating a smaller number of larger files and using tools like the hadoop archive (har). 2. Isolation: No isolation for a multi‐tenant environment. An experi- mental client application that puts high load on the central name node can impact a production application. 3. Availability: While the design does not prevent building a failover mech- anism, when a failure occurs the entire namespace and hence the entire cluster is down. E.ADVANTAGE 1. Distribute data and computation. The computation local to data prevents the network overload. 2. Simple programming model. The end user pro- grammer only writes map-reduce tasks. 3. HDFS store large amount of information. 4. HDFS is simple and robust coherency model. 5. Data will be written to the HDFS once and then read several times. 6. Fault tolerance by detecting faults and applying quick, automatic recovery. 7. Ability to rapidly process large amounts of data in parallel 8. Can be offered as an on-demand service, for exam- ple as part of Amazon’s EC2 cluster computing service E.LIMITATIONS 1. Rough manner:- Hadoop Map-reduce and HDFS are rough in manner. Because the software under active de- velopment. 2. Programming model is very restrictive:- Lack of central data can be preventive. 3. Still single master which requires care and may limit scaling. 4. Managing job flow isn’t trivial when intermediate data should be kept. 5.Cluster management is hard:- In the cluster, opera- tions like debugging, distributing software, collection logs etc. are too hard. F.CONCLUSION We have seen the components of hadoop and the hadoop distributed file system in brief. As compare to other file sys-
