>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12065
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: io
>            Reporter: Kai Zheng

>         Attachments: HADOOP-12065-HDFS-7285-v1.patch
> Commented by [~szetszwo] in HADOOP-12029:
> bq. We should also change "k" and "m" in the following to something like "numDataUnits"
and "numParityUnits".
> {code}
>    public static final String NUM_DATA_UNITS_KEY = "k";
>    public static final String NUM_PARITY_UNITS_KEY = "m";
> {code}
> This sounds good to me, as in fact in many erasure coding related papers, discussions,
and implementations, though {{k}} and {{m}} are broadly used, the meanings are not consistent.
For example, {{m}} can also mean {{numDataUnits + numParityUnits}}, all the rows in the coding
matrix. The suggested names are more clear and explicit.
