Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-6432) Add snapshot related APIs to webhdfs
Date Mon, 19 May 2014 17:10:38 GMT
Suresh Srinivas created HDFS-6432:

             Summary: Add snapshot related APIs to webhdfs
                 Key: HDFS-6432
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6432
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: namenode
            Reporter: Suresh Srinivas

The webhdfs interface is used by many external tools to interface with HDFS independent of
java based hdfs client. Many data management tools can use snapshot capability to snapshot
the data on the file system and use it for purposes such as creating consistent copy, replication,
and recovery.

This jira proposes to expose the following APIs in webhdfs:
# createSnapshot
# deleteSnapshot
# renameSnapshot
