      Description

      The DataNode is configured with ipc.client.ping false and ipc.ping.interval 14000. This configuration means that the IPC Client (DataNode, in this case) should timeout in 14000 seconds if the Standby NameNode does not respond to a sendHeartbeat.

      What we observe is this: If the Standby NameNode happens to reboot for any reason, the DataNodes that are heartbeating to this Standby get stuck forever while trying to sendHeartbeat. See Stack trace included below. When the Standby NameNode comes back up, we find that the DataNode never re-registers with the Standby NameNode. Thereafter failover completely fails.

      The desired behavior is that the DataNode's sendHeartbeat should timeout in 14 seconds, and keep retrying till the Standby NameNode comes back up. When it does, the DataNode should reconnect, re-register, and offer service.

      Specifically, in the class DatanodeProtocolClientSideTranslatorPB.java, the method createNamenode should use RPC.getProtocolProxy and not RPC.getProxy to create the DatanodeProtocolPB object.

      Stack trace of thread stuck in the DataNode after the Standby NN has rebooted:

      DataNode RPC to Standby NameNode never times out.
