Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1502) IOException at task startup "No valid local directories in property: dfs.client.buffer.dir"
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2007 06:01:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1502?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12507130

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-1502:

A comment here is that the File class's mkdirs( ) is vulnerable to the problem (as I commented
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1513#action_12507128), but File.mkdir( ) is not.
File class doesn't cache updates (as is true with HDFS). 
File.mkdir( ), File.exists( ) calls are passed on to the OS. So for example, if a thread calls
File.mkdir(), and, if another thread makes a call to File.exists() while the mkdir( ) is in
progress, that exists( ) call will return false. So if a call to File.exists() returns true,
we can be sure that the native filesystem contains that path.
