Package org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.diskbalancer.connectors Description
Connectors package is a set of logical connectors that connect
to various data sources to read the hadoop cluster information.
We currently have 3 connectors in this package. They are
DBNameNodeConnector - This uses the connector from the original
balancer package to connect to a real hadoop cluster.
JsonNodeConnector - This connects to a file and reads the data about a
cluster. We can generate a cluster json from a real cluster using
the diskBalancer tool or hand-craft it. There are some sample Json files
checked in under test/resources/diskBalancer directory.
NullConnector - This is an in-memory connector that is useful in testing.
we can crate dataNodes on the fly and attach to this connector and
ask the diskBalancer Cluster to read data from this source.
