Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3000) Add a public API for setting quotas
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 23:57:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3000?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13240843#comment-13240843

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-3000:

I agree with Eli that it is better to add an Admin API then adding them to FileSystem.  The
namespace quota is quite specific to HDFS.

> I don't think it's necessarily an "administrative command" per se. At least, I don't
see why there's a meaningful distinction between setting quotas and, say, chown.

Setting quota is pure admin method but users could use chown for changing groups although
they cannot change owner.

> Currently one can set the quota of a file or directory from the command line, but if
a user wants to set it programmatically, they need to use DistributedFileSystem, which is
annotated InterfaceAudience.Private.
