    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 0.9.3
    • Fix Version/s: 0.9.5
    • Component/s: Master
    • Environment:

      redhat linux using the official RPM

      Description

      Here's what happened to me:
      0) Check the node statuses on the flume master, realize I'm missing 6 servers
      1) Start up 6 brand new flume-nodes, point them at the flume master
      2) log on to the master to configure them
      – at this point I can't get a response from the master! I can connect via the shell, but every query I execute hangs. Browsing to the web dashboard hangs too.

      3) "oh crap, no problem I can restart it"
      4) restart the flume master
      5) flume master comes back online, but it has lost EVERY configuration
      6) I scramble to reconfigure every node using a ruby script

      I realize I should probably have more than one master process, but all I did was add new nodes to the cluster!
