Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-7174) Support for more efficient large directories
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2014 22:26:34 GMT
Kihwal Lee created HDFS-7174:

             Summary: Support for more efficient large directories
                 Key: HDFS-7174
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7174
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Kihwal Lee
            Assignee: Kihwal Lee
            Priority: Critical

When the number of children under a directory grows very large, insertion becomes very costly.
 E.g. creating 1M entries takes 10s of minutes.  This is because the complexity of an insertion
is O(n). As the size of a list grows, the overhead grows n^2. (integral of linear function).
 It also causes allocations and copies of big arrays.
