Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2092) Remove configuration object reference in DFSClient
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2011 23:34:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2092?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13054176#comment-13054176

Bharath Mundlapudi commented on HDFS-2092:

Hi Eli,

>> Does this change mean that a Configuration object can now bee free'd because there's
one fewer ref to it?
Yes, the direction of this patch is that. Eventually, we will be passing around only the DFSClient#conf
or only required parameters to the downstream. This will be a big change and needs border
discussion. But you are right, the idea is to stop having references to the conf object coming
from the users. We want to let client code to decide the scope of conf object.  

Regarding memory, these will be few [key,value] pairs copied into DFSClient but then will
be freeing the blotted conf object for the GC. That will be a big win on memory.

> 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.
