Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4397) fuse-dfs causes corruptions on multi-threaded access
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2008 13:00:44 GMT

Brian Bockelman commented on HADOOP-4397:
-----------------------------------------

Hey Pete,

I didn't protect all writes to the dfs context because I only had time to look at the one
case - no reason other than that, probably needs to be done.

> If multiple threads in the same process perform file system reads, then fuse-dfs causes
various problems due to the per-context buffer.  I've seen this reflected in segmentation
violations and corruptions.
> I'll attach a proposed patch which takes the "easy way" out - I surround all calls to
dfs_read with a mutex.  You will obviously get performance degradations through thrashing
if the threads are reading different parts of the file (but for our application, the multi-threaded
reads are very, very infrequent.
> If we want to have fuse-dfs writes/reads in 0.19 or 0.20, we'll probably need to do the
same thing with writes.
> This patch could be easily integrated as stands, or a more elaborate approach could be
taken - per-thread buffers maybe?
> Thanks as always for looking into this,
> Brian
