Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-878) FileStatus should have a field "isUnderConstruction"
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 19:36:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-878?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12835356#action_12835356

Zheng Shao commented on HDFS-878:

Hairong, I guess you mean DFSInputStream provides the visible length and "under construction"
I will open a JIRA for the "under construction" information for HDFS and HFTP.

> Currently DFSClient has no way to know whether a file is under construction or not, unless
we open the file and get locatedBlocks (which is much more costly).
> However, the namenode knows whether each INode is under construction or not.
> We should expose that information from NameNode.getListing(), to DFSClient.listPaths(),
to DistributedFileSystem.listStatus().
> We should also expose that information through DFSInputStream and DFSDataInputStream
if not there yet.
