> Currently viewFS initialize all configured target filesystems when viewfs#init itself.
> Some target file system initialization involve creating heavy objects and proxy connections.
Ex: DistributedFileSystem#initialize will create DFSClient object which will create proxy
connections to NN etc.
> For example: if ViewFS configured with 10 target fs with hdfs uri and 2 targets with
> If one of the client only work with s3a target, But ViewFS will initialize all targets
irrespective of what clients interested to work with. That means, here client will create
10 DFS initializations and 2 s3a initializations. Its unnecessary to have DFS initialization
here. So, it will be a good idea to initialize the target fs only when first time usage call
come to particular target fs scheme.
