Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1070) Speedup NameNode image loading and saving by storing local file names

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1070?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13019624#comment-13019624

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-1070:
----------------------------------------------

> The failed tests seem not be caused by this patch. ...

I agree.  [Build 364|https://builds.apache.org/hudson/job/PreCommit-HDFS-Build/364/testReport/]
was executed by [hadoop3|https://builds.apache.org/hudson/computer/hadoop3/builds].  The machine
keeps failing HDFS builds.

> 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.
