Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2158) hdfsListDirectory in libhdfs does not scale
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2007 07:55:50 GMT

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-2158:

Just realized that in HADOOP-2076, the tasks were getting killed because they could not connect
to the tasktracker. So this issue may not be the cause of that one.

>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: libhdfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.15.0

>         Attachments: 2158.patch
> hdfsListDirectory makes one rpc call using deprecated fs.FileSystem.listPaths, and then
two rpc calls for every entry in the returned array. When running a job with more than 3000
mappers each running a pipes application using libhdfs to scan a dfs directory with about
100-200 entries, this results in about 1M rpc calls to the namenode server overwhelming it.
> hdfsListDirectory should call fs.FileSystem.listStatus instead.
> I will submit a patch.
