James Thomas commented on HDFS-6482:
------------------------------------

[~sureshms] Do you know if there are any benchmarks that demonstrate that creating hundreds
of thousands of hard links using the regular upgrade procedure is slow?

> Right now blocks are placed into directories that are split into many subdirectories
when capacity is reached. Instead we can use a block's ID to determine the path it should
go in. This eliminates the need for the LDir data structure that facilitates the splitting
of directories when they reach capacity as well as fields in ReplicaInfo that keep track of
a replica's location.
> An extension of the work in HDFS-3290.
