> We observed this issue in rolling upgrade to 2.6.x on one of our cluster.
> One of the disks was very busy and it took long time to scan that disk compared to other
disks.
> Seeing the sar (System Activity Reporter) data we saw that the particular disk was very
busy performing IO operations.
> Requesting for an improvement during datanode rolling upgrade.
> During shutdown, we can persist the whole volume map on the disk and let the datanode
read that file and create the volume map during startup  after rolling upgrade.
> This will not require the datanode process to scan all the disk and read the block.
> This will significantly improve the datanode startup time.
