Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1148) Convert FSDataset to ReadWriteLock

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-1148:
---------------------------------------

Todd, I want to understand what methods have lot contention. Also you say:
> As I understood it, the non-fair mode is more efficient. Since the lock is mostly uncontended

I am not sure what you mean mostly uncontended, because I understand the problem description
as there are lot of contentions...

> In benchmarking HDFS-941 I noticed that for the random read workload, the FSDataset lock
is highly contended. After converting it to a ReentrantReadWriteLock, I saw a ~25% improvement
on both latency and ops/second.
