Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-9924) [umbrella] Nonblocking HDFS Access
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2016 07:53:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9924?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze updated HDFS-9924:
--------------------------------------
    Description: 
This is an umbrella JIRA for supporting Nonblocking HDFS Access.

Currently, all the API methods are blocking calls -- the caller is blocked until the method
returns.  It is very slow if a client makes a large number of independent calls in a single
thread since each call has to wait until the previous call is finished.  It is inefficient
if a client needs to create a large number of threads to invoke the calls.

We propose adding a new API to support nonblocking calls, i.e. the caller is not blocked.
 The methods in the new API immediately return a Java Future object.  The return value can
be obtained by the usual Future.get() method.
