Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8240) Allow users to specify a checksum type on create()
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2012 19:50:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8240?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13497385#comment-13497385

Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HADOOP-8240:

Great, Thank Kihwal. 
but it may still cover certain rare failure modes.
Sorry, I did not get, what failures it can detect. Since there is no meta file content updated
with CRC, it can not verify CRCs right?

> Per discussion in HADOOP-8060, a way for users to specify a checksum type on create()
is needed. The way FileSystem cache works makes it impossible to use dfs.checksum.type to
achieve this. Also checksum-related API is at Filesystem-level, so we prefer something at
that level, not hdfs-specific one.  Current proposal is to use CreatFlag.
