Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-6311) Add support for unix domain sockets to JNI libs
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 02:21:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6311?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13473784#comment-13473784

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-6311:
----------------------------------------------

Thanks for the review, Andy.

bq. [red-black, splay tree implementations]

We already use the same red-black tree implementation in libhdfs.  It comes directly out of
the BSD kernel and is released under a liberal license.  It has to be a tree because hash
tables are unordered, and we have to expire old file descriptors that were not claimed within
a certain time period.  That means ordering by time.  The trees are also much more flexible
in a lot of ways.

bq. I think [ {{unixDomainSetupSockaddr}} ] can be static, right?

It's also used in fd_client.c.

bq. Put a maximum count on [RETRY_ON_EINTR]

This is basically my version of {{TEMP_FAILURE_RETRY}}, a fine macro which happens to be a
Linux-ism.  [http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Interrupted-Primitives.html#Interrupted-Primitives]
 {{TEMP_FAILURE_RETRY}} doesn't have a maximum count, and as far as I know, there's no reason
why you would need one.

bq. [safe write]

I'll add the extra check for too-large write() results.

The contract is "write exactly the given amount or return an error."  If we get an error while
writing to the socket, the exact amount written prior to that is not interesting (in this
case at least.)

bq. [dup / fseek issues]

I don't think it's an issue in the particular use cases we have planned (i.e., HDFS-347.)
 But it should definitely be documented.

bq. [Use /dev/urandom]

It's a Linux-ism.  but I guess we could do it on that platform.

> For HDFS-347 we need to use unix domain sockets. This JIRA is to include a library in
common which adds a o.a.h.net.unix package based on the code from Android (apache 2 license)
