Re: Multiple hdfs

+1 on viewfs, I was going to add that :-)

To add to this, viewfs can be use as a federation layer for supporting multiple HDFS clusters for checkpoint/savepoint HA purpose as well.

I think that Hadoop recommends to solve such setups with a viewfs:// that spans both HDFS clusters and then the two different clusters look like different paths within on file system. Similar as mounting different file systems into one directory tree in unix.

You only need to modify the core-site and hdfs-site read by Flink.

Wouldnt 2 core-site and hdfs-site xmls need to be provided in this case then ?

Hi Kien,

Thanks for you reply.

Your goal is to store the checkpoints in one hdfs cluster and the data in other hdfs cluster.

So the flink should be able to connect to two different hdfs clusters.

If your cluster are not high-availability clusters then just use the full path to the cluster.

For example, to refer to directory /checkpoint on cluster1, use hdfs://namenode1_ip:port/checkpoint

Like wise, /data on cluster2 will be hdfs://namenode2_ip:port/data

If your cluster is a HA cluster, then you need to modify the hdfs-site.xml like section 1 of this guide


Then use the full path to the cluster hdfs://cluster1ha/checkpoint & hdfs://cluster2ha/data

I want to store my data in one hdfs and the flink checkpoints in another hdfs. I didn't find a way to do it, anyone can point me a direction?

Thanks in advance,
