Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7397) The conf key "dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.streams.cache.size" is misleading
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2015 02:19:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7397?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14334270#comment-14334270

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-7397:
--------------------------------------------

bq. dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.cache.block-count-max?

We're not caching blocks, we're caching file descriptors.

bq. Do you agree that "dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.streams.cache.size" is misleading?

To be honest, I think the current name is fine.  This is a cache of file descriptors.  You
can't cache half a file descriptor, hence questions like "is it in kb or mb" have no meaning.
 That is why I suggested updating the docs.  I do not feel strongly about it, though.

> For dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.streams.cache.size, is it in MB or KB?  Interestingly,
it is neither in MB nor KB.  It is the number of shortcircuit streams.
