Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6581) Write to single replica in memory
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2014 09:31:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6581?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14140238#comment-14140238

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-6581:

I'd like to also echo Colin's desire to see some positive benchmark numbers before merging
this. Since the point of this JIRA is to improve read/write performance, it really seems like
we should verify that some nice gains are possible before adding this complexity. This is
what we did for HDFS-4949, and I did also ask for benchmarks in my comment about a month ago.

Arpit, I seem to remember you had a WIP short-circuit writes patch you were working on a while
ago. Do you have any numbers from that even? Colin wrote a vectorized sum microbenchmark using
zero-copy reads at HDFS-6287 you might be able to adapt. This does dredge up the discussion
about the design of short-circuit writes, but maybe that's a bridge that has to be crossed.

replica in DN memory via DataTransferProtocol.
