Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1353) Remove most of getBlockLocation optimization
Date Fri, 03 Sep 2010 21:20:34 GMT

Jakob Homan commented on HDFS-1353:
-----------------------------------

bq. In BlockTokenIdentifier constructor, should we check for non-zero blockId? Earlier we
checked for non-null blockIds array. 
The blockID is a random number, so it might be 0, so we don't need to check that.  Thanks.

> HDFS-1081 optimized the number of block access tokens (BATs) created in a single call
to getBlockLocations, as this is an expensive operation.  However, that JIRA put off another
optimization which was then made possible, which is to just send a single block access token
across the wire (and maintain a single BAT on the client side).  This JIRA is for implementing
that optimization.  Since a single BAT is generated for all the blocks, we just write that
single BAT to the wire, rather than writing n BATs for n blocks, as is currently done.  This
turns out to be a useful optimization for files with very large numbers of blocks, as the
new lone BAT is much larger than was a BAT previously.
