Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1070) Speedup NameNode image loading and saving by storing local file names
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2010 06:54:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1070?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12933331#action_12933331
] 

Hairong Kuang commented on HDFS-1070:
-------------------------------------

Sanjay, the idea is simple. Changes are
1. full name -> local name
2. each directory additionally need to store directory size

Nodes are stored in the depth first order. For example, a namespace like
/d1/d2/f1
/d1/d3
/f2

will store as: root 3 d1 2 d2 1 f1 d3 0 f2

I will post performance data later.

> Currently each inode stores its full path in the fsimage. I'd propose to store the local
name instead. In order for each inode to identify its parent, all inodes in a directory tree
are stored in the image in in-order. This proposal also requires each directory stores the
number of its children in image.
> This proposal would bring a few benefits as pointed below and therefore speedup the image
loading and saving.
> # Remove the overhead of converting java-UTF8 encoded local name to string-represented
full path then to UTF8 encoded full path when saving to an image and vice versa when loading
the image.
> # Remove the overhead of traversing the full path when inserting the inode to its parent
inode.
> # Reduce the number of temporary java objects during the process of image loading or
saving and  therefore reduce the GC overhead.
> # Reduce the size of an image.
