> If the NameNode is not available (in, for example, a network partition event separating
the client from the NameNode), and an attempt is made to connect, then the FileSystem api
will *eventually* timeout and throw an error. However, that timeout is currently hardcoded
to be 20 seconds to connect, with 45 retries, for a total of a 15 minute wait before failure.
While in many circumstances this is fine, there are also many circumstances (such as booting
a service) where both the connection timeout and the number of retries should be significantly
less, so as not to harm availability of other services.
> Investigating Client.java, I see that there are two fields in Connection: maxRetries
and rpcTimeout. I propose either re-using those fields for initiating the connection as well;
alternatively, using the already existing dfs.socket.timeout parameter to set the connection
timeout on initialization, and potentially adding a new field such as dfs.connection.retries
with a default of 45 to replicate current behaviors.
