> HADOOP-7030 introduced TableMapping, an implementation of DNSToSwitchMapping which uses
a file to map from IPs/hosts to their racks.  It's intended to replace ScriptBasedMapping
for cases where the latter was just a complicated way of looking up the rack in a file.
> Though there was discussion of it on the JIRA, the TableMapping implementation is not
'refreshable'.  i.e., if you want to add a host to your cluster, and that host wasn't in the
topology file to begin with, it will never be added.
> TableMapping should refresh, either based on a command that can be executed, or, perhaps,
if the file on disk changes.
> I'll also point out that TableMapping extends CachedDNSToSwitchMapping, but, since it
does no refreshing, I don't see what the caching gets you: I think the cache ends up being
a second copy of the underlying map, always.
