Namespace Service of JindoFS supports different metadata storage backends. By default, RocksDB is used. This topic describes how to configure RocksDB as the metadata storage backend.

Background information

RocksDB cannot be configured in high availability mode. If you need to configure a metadata storage backend in high availability mode, we recommend that you use Tablestore or Raft instances. For more information, see Use Tablestore instances to store metadata and Use Raft-RocksDB-Tablestore to store metadata.
