Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2527) Add ability to snapshot data as input to hadoop jobs

T Jake Luciani commented on CASSANDRA-2527:
-------------------------------------------

This might be a bit off the wall but my idea was to make a mock read only hdfs compatible
file system.  

The structure of which would look like:
{code}
/nodes 
           / ip1
                   /snapshot1/ 
                                     /keyspace1/
                                              SStable1-data.db
                                              .....
                  /snapshot2/
                                     ...
          / ip2
                  ...
{code}

Since this data is immutable there would be no namenode service, it would simply query the
nodes for the file info.  
If the mapper runs on a non-local node we use a sendfile() copy mechanism.

> It is desirable to have immutable inputs to hadoop jobs for the duration of the job.
 That way re-execution of individual tasks do not alter the output.  One way to accomplish
this would be to snapshot the data that is used as input to a job.
