Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2092) Remove configuration object reference in DFSClient
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2011 19:03:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2092?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13054037#comment-13054037
] 

Bharath Mundlapudi commented on HDFS-2092:
------------------------------------------

I have moved uMask back to DFSClient as it was before instead of creating at the construction
of DFSClient.Conf. Typically, Conf should be created once and should be sent to FileSystem.get.


Like,
{code}
conf = new Configuration();
... //set conf related key, values here
fs = FileSystem.get(conf); 
{code}

But someone can do the following today:

{code}
conf = new Configuration();
... //set conf related key, values here
fs = FileSystem.get(conf); 
//set somemore or change the conf key, values here.
{code}

Clearly, this shouldn't be allowed. Today, conf is used as a context. It should be set once.
If we want to change the conf then close the filesystem and re-init the conf.

I will fix the uMask related changes in an another JIRA since this requires some refactoring.

> At present, DFSClient stores reference to configuration object. Since, these configuration
objects are pretty big at times can blot the processes which has multiple DFSClient objects
like in TaskTracker. This is an attempt to remove the reference of conf object in DFSClient.
