Date Wed, 29 Jan 2014 20:30:19 GMT

]

Jason Lowe updated HDFS-5293:
-----------------------------

    Target Version/s: 3.0.0, 2.4.0  (was: 3.0.0)

> Symlink resolution requires unnecessary RPCs
> --------------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: HDFS-5293
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5293
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 3.0.0

>            Priority: Critical
>
> When the NN encounters a symlink, it throws an {{UnresolvedLinkException}}.  This exception
contains only the path that is a symlink.  The client issues another RPC to obtain the link
target, followed by another RPC with the link target + remainder of the original path.
> {{UnresolvedLinkException}} should be returning both the link and the target to avoid
a costly and unnecessary intermediate RPC to obtain the link target.
