Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2538) option to disable fsck dots
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2014 20:53:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2538?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13910796#comment-13910796

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-2538:
----------------------------------------

bq. Also, this does need to have the dots on by default for compatibility.

I humbly and respectfully disagree.  The key question is compatibility against what?  We're
talking about command line output that I suspect the vast majority of people are filtering
out and has *no* stability label that I'm aware of.  What could possibly break by removing
the dots?

> this patch turns the dots during fsck off by default and provides an option to turn them
back on if you have a fetish for millions and millions of dots on your terminal.  i haven't
done any benchmarks, but i suspect fsck is now 300% faster to boot.
