Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-8246) Get HDFS file name based on block pool id and block id
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 02:02:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8246?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14587323#comment-14587323
] 

Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze commented on HDFS-8246:
-------------------------------------------

(1) and (5) are just empty statements

For (2) and (3), we probably do not want ls to show block IDs as Unix/Linux doesn't.  Also,
it becomes a problem for files having a lot of blocks.

For (4), namenode is enforcing access control already.

It seems that we don't really have a use case for the proposed API.

> This feature provides HDFS shell command and C/Java API to retrieve HDFS file name based
on block pool id and block id.
> 1. The Java API in class DistributedFileSystem
> public String getFileName(String poolId, long blockId) throws IOException
> 2. The C API in hdfs.c
> char* hdfsGetFileName(hdfsFS fs, const char* poolId, int64_t blockId)
> 3. The HDFS shell command 
>  hdfs dfs [generic options] -fn <poolId> <blockId>
> This feature is useful if you have HDFS block file name in local file system and want
to  find out the related HDFS file name in HDFS name space (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10881449/how-to-find-file-from-blockname-in-hdfs-hadoop).
 Each HDFS block file name in local file system contains both block pool id and block id,
for sample HDFS block file name /hdfs/1/hadoop/hdfs/data/current/BP-97622798-10.3.11.84-1428081035160/current/finalized/subdir0/subdir0/blk_1073741825,
 the block pool id is BP-97622798-10.3.11.84-1428081035160 and the block id is 1073741825.
The block  pool id is uniquely related to a HDFS name node/name space,  and the block id is
uniquely related to a HDFS file within a HDFS name node/name space, so the combination of
block pool id and a block id is uniquely related a HDFS file name. 
> The shell command and C/Java API do not map the block pool id to name node, so it’s
user’s responsibility to talk to the correct name node in federation environment that has
multiple name nodes. The block pool id is used by name node to check if the user is talking
with the correct name node.
> The implementation is straightforward. The client request to get HDFS file name reaches
the new method String getFileName(String poolId, long blockId) in FSNamesystem in name node
through RPC,  and the new method does the followings,
> (1)	Validate the block pool id.
> (2)	Create Block  based on the block id.
> (3)	Get BlockInfoContiguous from Block.
> (4)	Get BlockCollection from BlockInfoContiguous.
> (5)	Get file name from BlockCollection.
