Subject RE: Replication problem of HDFS
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2007 02:23:09 GMT

So, the upload process(from local file system to HDFS) will store all
blocks(split from the dataset, 
said M split blocks) into a single node(depend on which client you put), not
to all datanodes. 
And the "replication" means to replicate to N clients(if replication=N) and
each client owns
a completed/all M blocks. If I am wrong, please correct it. Thanks.
