Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-5006) Provide a link to symlink target in the web UI
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2013 00:48:48 GMT
Stephen Chu created HDFS-5006:

             Summary: Provide a link to symlink target in the web UI
                 Key: HDFS-5006
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5006
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
            Reporter: Stephen Chu
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: screenshot1.png, screenshot2.png

Currently, it's difficult to see what is a symlink from the web UI.

I've attached two screenshots. In screenshot 1, we see the symlink _/user/schu/tf2-link_ which
has a target _/user/schu/dir1/tf2_.

If we click the tf2-link URL, we arrive at a page that shows the path of the target (screenshot

It'd be useful if there was a link to this target web UI page and some way of easily discerning
if a file is a symlink.
