Kai Zheng commented on HDFS-6658:
---------------------------------

So would it be better to put the BlockList stuffs off heap directly? Thanks.

>
> Part of the memory consumed by every BlockInfo object in the Namenode is a linked list
of block references for every DatanodeStorageInfo (called "triplets"). 
> We propose to change the way we store the list in memory. 
> Using primitive integer indexes instead of object references will reduce the memory needed
for every block replica (when compressed oops is disabled) and in our new design the list
overhead will be per DatanodeStorageInfo and not per block replica.
> see attached design doc. for details and evaluation results.
