Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7967) Need generalized multi-token filesystem support
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 22:38:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7967?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13433684#comment-13433684

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-7967:

The dilemma over breaking compatibility by reducing the visibility of {{getDelegationToken}}
is interesting.  Code that attempts to use this method is incompatible with {{ViewFileSystem}}.
 Viewfs can't return tokens and then tasks will unexpectedly fail due to the missing tokens...

I'm willing to revert the visibility, although this is maybe one of the few cases where making
things break is the right thing to do?

> Multi-token filesystem support and its interactions with the MR {{TokenCache}} is problematic.
 The {{TokenCache}} tries to assume it has the knowledge to know if the tokens for a filesystem
are available, which it can't possibly know for multi-token filesystems.  Filtered filesystems
are also problematic, such as har on viewfs.  When mergeFs is implemented, it too will become
a problem with the current implementation.  Currently {{FileSystem}} will leak tokens even
when some tokens are already present.
> The decision for token acquisition, and which tokens, should be pushed all the way down
into the {{FileSystem}} level.  The {{TokenCache}} should be ignorant and simply request tokens
from each {{FileSystem}}.
