Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6283) Write end user documentation for xattrs.
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 05:40:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6283?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13997300#comment-13997300

Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HDFS-6283:

extended attributes are not interpreted by the system and are instead used by applications
to store additional information about an inode.
I saw this line. This is saying Xattrs can not be interpreted by System. But the xattrs with
system/security name will be used only by system. So, we should not generically say that Xattrs
can not be interpreted by system? Please correct me I interpreted this line wrongly :-)
Let me know if we need to change this, then I wil file a follow-up JIRA as it is already committed.

 If warranted, consider adding a separate dedicated page for fuller discussion of the xattrs
model and how the feature works in more detail.
