Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5862) Namespace quota exceeded message unclear
Date Mon, 01 Jun 2009 03:40:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5862?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12714961#action_12714961

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-5862:

The patch looks good. A few comments apart from Nicholas comment above.

# Need to makes sure help for command line quota commands and documentation user guide reflect
the new behaviour.
# In the Exception message, it might be better to replace "diskspace count=" with something
like "diskspace consumed=". "count" might confuse users.
# Currently {{FSDirectory.updateCountForInodeWithQuota()}} warns when a directory exceeds
quota. The warning text implies it is a software error (or corruption in the image) since
it is not expected. The wording in the warning could be changed to be less severe.

> We seem to return one generic message when either a namespace or diskspace quota is exceeded.
 We should be clearer.   The error should state which quota is exceeded and only report statistics
on the exceeded quota.
> Further namespace quota is probably not clear to most users.  We should probably have
explanatory text such as: "you have exceeded the maximum allowed number of files".  Maybe
we should even rename the quota to number of files quota?
> Finally, the error below would be clearer if it read:
>   Quota exceeded for directory '/user/ciyaliao'.
> By not using the word "directory" it is not clear in this case if the issue is with a
user or a directory.
