Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2466) Need a public way to check DFS Safemode status

Need a public way to check DFS Safemode status

                 Key: HDFS-2466
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2466
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hdfs client
    Affects Versions: 0.23.0
            Reporter: Harsh J
            Assignee: Harsh J
            Priority: Critical

The current way for a DFS client to check or set safemode status is via the private DistributedFileSystem

While user/downstream (HBASE, PIG, HIVE) clients do not really need a way to "set" the safemode
(doable by shell functions today), they can surely benefit from having a public API to check
for safemode. Right now there is no way to do so.

I plan to introduce a safemode check via a new public, evolving API "HDFSAdmin" (DFSAdmin
already seems taken up by shell).

(Part of HBASE-4510 can benefit from this, for example)
