Date Fri, 27 May 2011 04:26:47 GMT
ability to support storing extended attributes per file
-------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-2006
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2006
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: name-node
            Reporter: dhruba borthakur


It would be nice if HDFS provides a feature to store extended attributes for files, similar
to the one described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_attributes. 
The challenge is that it has to be done in such a way that a site not using this feature does
not waste precious memory resources in the namenode.
