Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4170) Add snapshot information to INodesInPath
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2012 00:20:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4170?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13496704#comment-13496704
] 

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-4170:
--------------------------------------

bq. Yes, a snapshot path is supposed to be a path under an already-created snapshot, e.g.
/foo/.snapshot/s1/bar. However, it also includes non-existing snapshots since paths may be
provided by users. They could pass paths containing non-existing snapshots.

Got it, makes sense. Might want to make it clear in the comment then how that case could occur,
and also clearly define "snapshot path" and "non-snapshot path."

> For snapshot paths, the snapshot information is required for accessing the snapshot.
> For non-snapshot paths, the latest snapshot found in the path is required for maintaining
diffs for modification.
