-Re: Which java code(file) generates the heartbeat from the datanode and which code(file) listen that heartbeat on the namenode?

No problem. Glad to help. :-)
In the last email, I mentioned the sendHeartbeat method in
NameNodeRpcServer.java. This is the method that handles receiving a
heartbeat from a datanode. Even though the method is named "send" instead
of "receive", this is the right place to look. The reason is that this is
an implementation of a method defined in the DatanodeProtocol interface,
and the protocol's naming convention is from the perspective of the
datanode rather than the namenode.
Block placement decisions are encapsulated behind a BlockPlacementPolicy
interface. Custom implementations are possible, and the default
implementation is BlockPlacementPolicyDefault. You'll find code in there
that checks the network topology to decide where to place blocks. These
files are in
