Re: Question about HA and Federation
Hi,

To put it simply: If you use a NameNode, you need a SecondaryNameNode.
In HA-mode, a StandbyNameNode acts as a SecondaryNameNode (so you
don't need to run an extra).

Either way, you definitely need the checkpoint operation happening and
being monitored for.
