Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2744) Extend FSDataInputStream to allow fadvise
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2012 21:48:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2744?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13179049#comment-13179049

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2744:


Should we add some interface called FAdvisable and then provide default implementation in
FSInputStream and FSOutputStream (that is advise is ignored). The real implementation could
be provided in DFS classes.

> Now that we have direct reads from local HDFS block files (HDFS-2246), it might make
sense to make FSDataInputStream support fadvise calls. I have an application (HBase) that
would like to tell the OS that it should not buffer data in the OS buffer cache.
