Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4103) Support O(1) snapshot creation
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 20:34:12 GMT
Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE created HDFS-4103:

             Summary: Support O(1) snapshot creation
                 Key: HDFS-4103
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4103
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: name-node
            Reporter: Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE

In our first snapshot implementation, snapshot creation runs in O(N) and occupies O(N) memory
space, where N = # files + # directories + # symlinks in the snapshot.  The advantages of
the implementation are that there is no additional cost for the modifications after snapshots
are created, and it leads to a simple implementation.

In this JIRA, we optimize snapshot creation to O(1) although it introduces additional cost
in the modifications after snapshots are created.
