Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-3029) Piggyback allocation of first block with create() call
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 01:42:08 GMT
Piggyback allocation of first block with create() call

                 Key: HDFS-3029
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3029
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hdfs client, name-node, performance
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

Currently to create a file, the client makes two requests: the first to create the file, the
second to allocate the block. In an HA setup, both of these necessitate a sync of the edit
logs. In all setups, it requires an unnecessary round trip. We should consider piggy-backing
the allocation of the first block with the create() call since it will be needed almost all
the time.
