Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10034) optimize same-filesystem symlinks by doing resolution server-side
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2013 00:35:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10034?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13791048#comment-13791048

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-10034:
-----------------------------------------------

bq. Won't doing this preclude us ever adding real relative paths into HDFS? i.e., supporting
..

I assume you mean symlinks to "{{..}}".  We do have those already-- hence the discussion about
making the client's mount table accessible to the server.

Tangent: I have to admit, I'm a little confused by the idea of relative symlinks that include
a scheme other than null.  Are we going to allow those, and if so, what should the behavior
be?

client side, as discussed on HADOOP-9780.
