Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6283) Write end user documentation for xattrs.
Date Tue, 13 May 2014 18:30:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6283?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13996743#comment-13996743

Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HDFS-6283:

Thanks a lot Andrew for the documentation!

Here are my quick comments on the patch!

dfs.namenode.inode.xattrs.max-limits  --> dfs.namenode.inode.xattrs.max-limit

* <<<dfs.namenode.inode.xattrs.name.max-length>>>
+  The maximum length of the name of an extended attribute. By default, this limit is 64 characters.
+  * <<<dfs.namenode.inode.xattrs.value.max-length>>>
+  The maximum length of the value of an extended attribute. By default, this limit is 16384
Please update as per JIRA HDFS-6377
Also need update in hdfs-default.xml 

XAttrCommands is from common code, so can you leave that changes in that file here. May we
can handle that improvement as part of HADOOP-10561?

Dump all extended *attribute* values associated with pathname --> Dump all values of the
extended *attributes* associated with pathname
Displays the extended *attribute* names and values  --> Displays the names and values of
the extended *attributes* ?

model and how the feature works in more detail.
