> The benefit of using InodeID to uniquely identify a file can be multiple folds. Here
are a few of them:
> 1. uniquely identify a file cross rename, related JIRAs include HDFS-4258, HDFS-4437.
> 2. modification checks in tools like distcp. Since a file could have been replaced or
renamed to, the file name and size combination is no t reliable, but the combination of file
id and size is unique.
> 3. id based protocol support (e.g., NFS)
> 4. to make the pluggable block placement policy use fileid instead of filename (HDFS-385).
