Subject Symlink support
Date Thu, 27 Aug 2009 01:29:08 GMT

Could someone tell me about the status of symbolic link support
in HDFS (HDFS-245)?

It looks like a patch is merged with latest trunk. So I would
like to know how good it works and whether or not the patch is
applicable for the current release of Hadoop.

We just start testing HDFS as a part of our ftp mirror site
(http://ftp.kddilabs.jp/). It works fine so far. But if HDFS
supports symlink feature, we could save lots of capacity :-)
