Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-10352) Allow users to get last access time of a given directory

Eric Lin commented on HDFS-10352:
---------------------------------

Hi [~linyiqun], Thanks for your comment. 

You have a valid point. Maybe we can create another getAccessTime() with different number
of parameters. Default to not checking children files, but if forced, the code can check accordingly.

I understand its potential issue here if there are too many files under the directory, but
this is still a handy feature that can benefit some users, and the edge case probably won't
happen often.

Thanks

> Currently FileStatus.getAccessTime() function will return 0 if path is a directory, it
would be ideal that if a directory path is passed, the code will go through all the files
under the directory and return the MAX access time of all the files.
