Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9981) Listing in RawLocalFileSystem is inefficient
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 20:24:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9981?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13773374#comment-13773374
] 

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-9981:
----------------------------------------------

yes, I think the globber can be fixed to avoid listStatus on non-wildcard path components.
 It will be a little tricky to do this while not breaking support for symlinks, but I think
it can be done.

> After HADOOP-9652, listStatus() or globStatus() calls against a local file system directory
is very slow.  A user was loading data from local file system to Hive and it took about 30
seconds. The same operation took less than a second pre-HADOOP-9652. 
> The input path had many other files beside the input files and strace showed that fork
& exec of stat against each and every one of them. jstack confirmed that this was being
done from getNativeFileLinkStatus().
