Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-10916) Switch from "raw" to "system" namespace for erasure coding policy
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2016 22:31:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10916?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Andrew Wang updated HDFS-10916:
    Release Note: 
EC policy is now stored in the "system" extended attribute namespace rather than "raw". This
means the EC policy extended attribute is no longer directly accessible by users or preserved
across a distcp that preserves raw extended attributes.

Users can instead use HdfsAdmin#setErasureCodingPolicy and HdfsAdmin#getErasureCodingPolicy
to set and get the EC policy for a path.

> Currently EC policy is stored as in the raw xattr namespace. It would be better to store
this in "system" like storage policy.
> Raw is meant for attributes which need to be preserved across a distcp, like encryption
info. EC policy is more similar to replication factor or storage policy, which can differ
between the src and target of a distcp.
