Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2528) check permissions for job inputs and outputs
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2008 23:16:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12556111#action_12556111

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-2528:

What if permissions checking is disabled (trunk currently allows it. it is in fact the default)?
I don't think client alone can decide if a particular access is allowed, even if it is possible
now. This looks similar to how DFS used to invoke '{{exits(file)}}' before opening a file.

Also this results in external commands to be run for LocalFileSystem for each file. Not that
it is prohibitively expensive...
