Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13055) Implement linkMergeSlash for ViewFileSystem
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2017 22:30:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13055?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16175574#comment-16175574

Lei (Eddy) Xu commented on HADOOP-13055:

Hi, [~manojg]

I am new to this I might have some misunderstanding.

// Is an internal directory
abstract boolean isInternalDir();

// Is a Merge Link or a Merge Slash Link
boolean isLink() {
   return !isInternalDir();
Can you add more comments here to clarify what is the concept of internal dir, and what is
the relationship between "internal dir" and {{Merge Link / Merge Slash Link}}? Or maybe rephrase
the names?


Can you add more comments on both of them? What is the difference?

for (LinkEntry le : linkEntries) {
if (le.isLinkType(LinkType.SINGLE_FALLBACK)) {
  INodeLink<T> fallbackLink = new INodeLink<T>(mountTableName, ugi,
  getTargetFileSystem(new URI(le.getTarget())),
   new URI(le.getTarget()));

How to guarantee that there is at most one {{LinkType.SINGLE_FALLBACK}} instance.

> In a multi-cluster environment it is sometimes useful to operate on the root / slash
directory of an HDFS cluster. E.g., list all top level directories. Quoting the comment in

>  *   A special case of the merge mount is where mount table's root is merged
