Fencing of NameNode in Big Data Hadoop
There is only one Active Name Node at a time. So, fencing is a process to ensure this property in a cluster.
->The JournalNodes performs this fencing by allowing only one NameNode to be the writer at a time.
-> The Standby NameNode takes over the responsibility of writing to the JournalNodes and forbid any other NameNode to remain active.
-> Finally, the new Active NameNode can perform its activities safely.
