Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-312) Connections should not be cached

eric baldeschwieler commented on HADOOP-312:

I'm very uncomfortable with this direction.  Turning this into a per installation configuration
challenge sounds like a very bad and unscalable idea.

> Servers and clients (client include datanodes, tasktrackers, DFSClients & tasks)
should not cache connections or maybe cache them for very short periods of time. Clients should
set up & tear down connections to the servers everytime they need to contact the servers
(including the heartbeats). If connection is cached, then reuse the existing connection for
a few subsequent transactions until the connection expires. The heartbeat interval should
be more so that many more clients (order of  tens of thousands) can be accomodated within
1 heartbeat interval.
