Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-11223) Offer a read-only conf alternative to new Configuration()

Gopal V created HADOOP-11223:

             Summary: Offer a read-only conf alternative to new Configuration()
                 Key: HADOOP-11223
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11223
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Gopal V

new Configuration() is called from several static blocks across Hadoop.

This is incredibly inefficient, since each one of those involves primarily XML parsing at
a point where the JIT won't be triggered & interpreter mode is essentially forced on the

The alternate solution would be to offer a {{Configuration::getDefault()}} alternative which
disallows any modifications.

At the very least, such a method would need to be called from 

# org.apache.hadoop.io.nativeio.NativeIO::<clinit>()
# org.apache.hadoop.security.SecurityUtil::<clinit>()
# org.apache.hadoop.yarn.factory.providers.RecordFactoryProvider::<clinit>
