Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6871) Improve NameNode performance when creating file
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2014 01:24:23 GMT

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-6871:
--------------------------------------------

Sure, we could have an overwrite flag.  Of course this would require a layout version bump

bq. But of course if we want to do this we should file a separate jira.

> Creating file with overwrite flag will cause NN fall into flush edit logs and block other
requests if the file exists.
> When we create a file with overwrite flag (default is true) in HDFS, NN will remove original
file if it exists. In FSNamesystem#startFileInternal, NN already holds the write lock, it
calls {{deleteInt}} if the file exists, there is logSync in {{deleteInt}}. So in this case,
logSync is under write lock, it will heavily affect the NN performance. 
> We should ignore the force logSync in {{deleteInt}} in this case.
