Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3890) Use of CredentialProvider results in a lot of NN ops

Mike Yoder commented on ACCUMULO-3890:
--------------------------------------

Granted the existing publicly available implementations are all based on something file-like.
But you never know what's coming in the future...and moving secrets into an external store
and hooking them up via the CredentialProvider is an appealing story. Caching is a reasonable
idea to cut down on RPCs, but I'd think you'd want to age items out of the cache fairly quickly.

I had a peek at some of the latest CredentialProvider code; the getCredentialEntry()  call
does have a cache, but I don't see any calls to actually populate that cache.  Wonder what's
going on there; you might want to investigate that bit first.

> Every time we access a sensitive property or iterate over a configuration when there
is a CredentialProvider configured, it results in NN operations (as evidenced by FSNamesystem.audit
logs).  I think that we could assume the CredentialProvider is static, read its properties
once and cache them in memory to avoid these unnecessary reads.
