Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3164) Use FileChannel.transferTo() when data is read from DataNode.
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2008 19:31:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3164?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12592156#action_12592156

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-3164:
--------------------------------------

I tested reading a 2GB file on a small windows box. Test takes same amount of wall clock time
(5-6min) in both cases. Didn't actually check CPU.

> HADOOP-2312 talks about using FileChannel's [{{transferTo()}}|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/nio/channels/FileChannel.html#transferTo(long,%20long,%20java.nio.channels.WritableByteChannel)]
and [{{transferFrom()}}|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/nio/channels/FileChannel.html#transferFrom(java.nio.channels.ReadableByteChannel,%20long,%20long)]
in DataNode. 
> At the time DataNode neither used NIO sockets nor wrote large chunks of contiguous block
data to socket. Hadoop 0.17 does both when data is seved to clients (and other datanodes).
I am planning to try using transferTo() in the trunk. This might reduce DataNode's cpu by
another 50% or more.
> Once HADOOP-1702 is committed, we can look into using transferFrom().
