Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5958) Use JDK 1.6 File APIs in DF.java wherever possible
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2009 19:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12768822#action_12768822
] 

Aaron Kimball commented on HADOOP-5958:
---------------------------------------

Do we want to use {{File.getFreeSpace()}} or {{File.getUsableSpace()}}? The API docs (http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/io/File.html)
are pretty vague about what "usable" means. A quick test on my machine shows that they do
return different values, by about 6%.

> JDK 1.6 has File APIs like File.getFreeSpace() which should be used instead of spawning
a command process for getting the various disk/partition related attributes. This would avoid
spikes in memory consumption by tasks when things like LocalDirAllocator is used for creating
paths on the filesystem.
