This paper discusses management problems of Hadoop distributed node, which is a platform for big data processing, and proposes a novel technique for enabling flexible node management of Hadoop Distributed File System. Hadoop cannot configure Hadoop cluster dynamically because it judges temporarily unavailable nodes as a failure. Delayed block replication scheme proposed in this paper delays the removal of unavailable node as much as possible so as to be easily rejoined. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme increases flexibility of node management with little impact on distributed processing performance when the cluster size changes.
