Daniel Templeton reassigned HDFS-8873:

>                 Key: HDFS-8873
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8873
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: datanode
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.1

> The new 2-level directory layout can make directory scans expensive in terms of disk
seeks (see HDFS-8791) for details. 
> It would be good if the directoryScanner() had a configurable duty cycle that would reduce
its impact on disk performance (much like the approach in HDFS-8617). 
> Without such a throttle, disks can go 100% busy for many minutes at a time (assuming
the common case of all inodes in cache but no directory blocks cached, 64K seeks are required
for full directory listing which translates to 655 seconds)
