Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-7680) Support dataset-specific choice of short circuit implementation
Date Mon, 26 Jan 2015 20:09:35 GMT
Joe Pallas created HDFS-7680:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Support dataset-specific choice of short circuit implementation
                 Key: HDFS-7680
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7680
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: datanode, dfsclient, hdfs-client
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Joe Pallas
            Assignee: Joe Pallas


As described in HDFS-5194, the current support for short circuit reading is tightly coupled
to the default Dataset implementation.  Since alternative implementations of the FsDatasetSpi
may use a different short circuit pathway, there needs to be a way for the client to acquire
the right kind of BlockReader.

Reviewing some considerations:
Today, there is only one dataset per datanode (with multiple volumes).  Is that likely to
change?
Can there be multiple datanodes local to a client?
Is it okay to assume that the client and datanode share configuration?  More broadly, how
should the client discover the appropriate short-circuit implementation?
