Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-1774) Remove use of INode.parent in Block CRC upgrade
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2007 23:20:30 GMT
Remove use of INode.parent in Block CRC upgrade
-----------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-1774
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1774
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Raghu Angadi
             Fix For: 0.15.0



HADOOP-1687 proposes various reductions in Namenode memory. One of the 'cuts' is to remove
'parent' field in INodes (8 bytes per file). HADOOP-1743 already deprecates INode.getAbsoluteName()
method. 

Block CRC Upgrade code still requires this field (blockID -> fileName -> parent ->
INode for .crc file). If we don't want to use parent, we need to build INode-to-parent map
at the beginning of the upgrade. Note this would increase memory required during upgrade by
50 bytes for each of non-crc files (50% of files). I would estimate this to be around 5% more
memory.
