Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-14444) New implementation of ftp and sftp filesystems
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2017 08:56:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14444?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16077832#comment-16077832

Lukas Waldmann commented on HADOOP-14444:
-----------------------------------------

I understand your point. On another hand i got an environment where transfer was killed by
the equipment after some timeout. Meaning the transfer was never completed for long files.
Only way how to complete the transfer is to use seek. So I agree that seek should be used
responsibly but functionality as such is necessary

> Current implementation of FTP and SFTP filesystems have severe limitations and performance
issues when dealing with high number of files. Mine patch solve those issues and integrate
both filesystems such a way that most of the core functionality is common for both and therefore
simplifying the maintainability.
> The core features:
> * Support for HTTP/SOCKS proxies
> * Support for passive FTP
> * Support of connection pooling - new connection is not created for every single command
but reused from the pool.
> For huge number of files it shows order of magnitude performance improvement over not
pooled connections.
> * Caching of directory trees. For ftp you always need to list whole directory whenever
you ask information about particular file.
> Again for huge number of files it shows order of magnitude performance improvement over
not cached connections.
> * Support of keep alive (NOOP) messages to avoid connection drops
> * Support for Unix style or regexp wildcard glob - useful for listing a particular files
across whole directory tree
> * Support for reestablishing broken ftp data transfers - can happen surprisingly often
