Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-2631) Rewrite fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol
Date Wed, 09 May 2012 23:01:49 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jaimin D Jetly updated HDFS-2631:

    Attachment: HDFS-2631.1.patch

This is an initial patch of fuse-webhdfs contrib project. Work is under progress.
you can review the code and read the README file for the installation .
Project supports all directory level commands and limited file level commands like read (more),
write (indirection >), append (>>), find.

Other functions that could be implemented in the future is statfs , symlink , access.

For now one needs to manually download libcurl and libjson libraries and configure+make (refer
README). But I will get it done through ant in the next patch.

> We should port the implementation of fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol. This has a
number of benefits:
> * Compatibility - allows a single fuse client to work across server versions
> * Works with both WebHDFS and Hoop since they are protocol compatible
> * Removes the overhead related to libhdfs (forking a jvm)
> * Makes it easier to support features like security
