How to handle a failure of a Hadoop data node

In the event of a Hadoop data node failure, you can address it by following these steps:

  1. Check if the data node is really down: first, verify if the data node is truly down by attempting to connect to it and checking its status. If it is indeed down, proceed to the next step.
  2. Rebooting the data node: Attempting to restart the failed data node may only be due to temporary network or hardware issues.
  3. Reconfigure data nodes: If you are unable to restart a data node or if it remains inaccessible, consider reconfiguring a new data node and adding it to the Hadoop cluster.
  4. Data replication and recovery: When a new data node is added to the cluster, Hadoop will automatically replicate and recover the data to ensure its integrity and reliability.
  5. Node replacement and failover: If a data node cannot be repaired or the data cannot be recovered, you can consider using the node replacement and failover feature to replace the failed data node with a new one and redistribute the data.
  6. Monitoring and prevention: Regularly monitor the status of data nodes, promptly detect and address failed nodes, and use backup and fault-tolerant mechanisms to prevent the impact of data node failure on the system.
