Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4712) New libhdfs method hdfsGetDataNodes
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 19:09:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4712?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13639425#comment-13639425

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-4712:

Hi Andrea,

I think {{datanodeReport}} is the method you want, much better than my earlier suggestion.

If I am interpreting correctly, you say you are creating your own {{DFSClient}}.  It shouldn't
be necessary for you to do that, since there should already be one of those that you can get
from the existing {{FileSystem}}.

I don't think that the requirement for superuser privileges is a problem.  Just set {{errno}}
to {{EPERM}} if the user doesn't have the correct permissions.  The requirement to be superuser
here is deliberate, and we don't want to open a security hole.

Please do attach the code; that's the first step towards getting it included in HDFS.  You
can also click "submit patch" to get JIRA results on it.

i can see info about JAVA patches but nothing related to extensions in C.
