Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-10355) Fix thread_local related build issue on Mac OS X
Date Mon, 02 May 2016 13:35:12 GMT
Tibor Kiss created HDFS-10355:

             Summary: Fix thread_local related build issue on Mac OS X
                 Key: HDFS-10355
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10355
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: hdfs-client
         Environment: OS: Mac OS X 10.11
clang: Apple LLVM version 7.0.2 (clang-700.1.81)
            Reporter: Tibor Kiss

The native hdfs library uses C++11 features heavily.
One of such feature is thread_local storage class which is supported in GCC, Visual Studio
and the community version of clang compiler, but not by Apple's clang (which is default on
OS X boxes). 
See further details here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/29929949

Even though not many Hadoop cluster runs on OS X developers still use this platform for development.

The problem can be solved multiple ways:
 a) Stick to gcc/g++ or community based clang on OS X. Developers will need extra steps to
build Hadoop.
 b) Workaround thread_local with a helper class.
 c) Get rid of all the globals marked with thread_local. Interface change will be erquired.
 d) Disable multi threading support in the native client on OS X and document this limitation.

Compile error related to thread_local:
