Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3051) A zero-copy ScatterGatherRead api from FSDataInputStream
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2016 07:39:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3051?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15374535#comment-15374535

Ravikumar commented on HDFS-3051:

How about returning the MappedByteBuffers of all blocks for a file in local. If there are
non-local blocks, this method can simply return empty.

public List<ByteBuffer> readFullyScatterGatherLocal(EnumSet<ReadOption> options)
    throws IOException {
    return ((PositionedReadable)in).readFullyScatterGather(options);

A quick sample-impl can be like

public List<ByteBuffer> readFullyScatterGatherLocal(EnumSet<ReadOption>) throws
  List<LocatedBlock> blockRange = getBlockRange(0, getFileLength());
 List<ByteBuffer> retval = new LinkedList<ByteBuffer>();
 for(LocatedBlock blk:blockRange) 
   blkReader = fetchBlockReader(blk, localDNAddrPair);
  ClientMmap mmap = blkReader.getClientMmap(readOptions);
  mmap.setunmap(false); //Instruction to cache-eviction to avoid unmapping this. Slots, streams
& all other resources will be closed
return retval

Apps opening InputStreams only once (Hbase??) can call this method & use the zero-copy
buffers for reads, if file is local.  If not available, they can fall back to regular DFSInputStream.
Reads can eliminate sync overheads & get same perf as a local filesystem.

But I don't know if "leaking" MappedByteBuffers to calling code can have nasty side-effects.

> It will be nice if we can get a new API from FSDtaInputStream that allows for zero-copy
read for hdfs readers.
