Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (HADOOP-5158) Port HDFS space quotas to 0.18

--------------------------------------------------------------

(Edit : minor readability fixes)
On further thought, it does not look like it is simple to handle the layout change. The layout
version is 16 (namespace quotas) in 0.18. In 0.19, layout increased to 17 for access times
and then to 18 for space quotas.

The layout version in 0.18 can not be changed as long as we support upgrade from 0.18.4 to
already released versions like 0.19.0. Even if have a restriction like a software can only
be upgraded to a later version (i.e. 0.18.4 to 0.19.1 (future release), but not to 0.19.0),
the code could be a bit messy.

What can be done now? I think we could provide a work around where space quotas are not persistent
in 0.18. So admin need to set the quotas each time the cluster restarts. Since quotas are
not really used by many, this might be an acceptable work around for a very few who need it.

> 0.18 already has quotas for HDFS namespace (HADOOP-3187). HADOOP-3938 implements similar
quotas for disk space on HDFS in 0.19. This jira proposes to port HADOOP-3938 to 0.18.4.
