Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-14600) LocatedFileStatus constructor forces RawLocalFS to exec a process to get the permissions
Date Fri, 24 Nov 2017 18:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14600?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16265476#comment-16265476

Ohad Raviv commented on HADOOP-14600:

I'm not sure I was clear enough in the above comment.
I totaly agree with your current patch, but I'm saying that the initiator of all this mess
from SPARK-21137 is org.apache.hadoop.mapred.FileInputFormat with the following code:
for (FileStatus globStat: matches) {
  if (globStat.isDirectory()) {
    RemoteIterator<LocatedFileStatus> iter =
    while (iter.hasNext()) {
      LocatedFileStatus stat = iter.next();
      if (inputFilter.accept(stat.getPath())) {
        if (recursive && stat.isDirectory()) {
          addInputPathRecursively(result, fs, stat.getPath(),
        } else {
  } else {
All I'm suggesting is to replace `listLocatedStatus` call with `listStatusIterator` because
it returns FileStatus rather than LocatedFileStatus and that doesn't trigger all the getPermission()
mess at all.
testing that localy (on Mac) caused the test to run in less than a second instead of about
30 seconds for about 10000 files.

> Reported in SPARK-21137. a {{FileSystem.listStatus}} call really craws against the local
FS, because {{FileStatus.getPemissions}} call forces  {{DeprecatedRawLocalFileStatus}} tp
spawn a process to read the real UGI values.
> That is: for every other FS, what's a field lookup or even a no-op, on the local FS it's
a process exec/spawn, with all the costs. This gets expensive if you have many files.
