Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7349) Support DFS command for the EC encoding
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 07:19:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7349?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14304733#comment-14304733

Kai Zheng commented on HDFS-7349:

bq.It's a design question whether we should ask users to configure each item (hdfs ec -convertToEC
<path> -numDataBlocks 6 -numParityBlocks 3 -codec RS) or choose from a predefined list
(hdfs ec -convertToEC <path> -s RS63)
I thought predefined list is a great idea and better approach, since it's error-prone to specify
those parameters. Please note we may have more parameters other than the three ones for some
code schemes. I just re-purposed HDFS-7371 to allow predefine EC schemas.
