Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11503) Integrate Chocolate Cloud RS coder implementation
Date Thu, 30 Mar 2017 17:01:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11503?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15949413#comment-15949413

Wei-Chiu Chuang commented on HDFS-11503:

Hello [~sw0rdf1sh] thanks much for your patch, and here's my two cents:

This patch relies on ChocolateCloud-RS library, which is not available in the precommit Jenkins
job, so we can't unit test it.
I also can't access the website mentioned in the doc (https://www.chocolate-cloud.cc/hdfs-plugins)
so not sure if we can install it on the Jenkins slaves, or if I can download it and test it

I am also not sure the implication of depending on a proprietary library. There are of course
other vendors developing all kinds of proprietary plugins for Hadoop, but typically the plugin
interface is pretty clean.

>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: erasure-coding
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha2

> Quote from Marcell on HDFS-7285:
> First of all let me introduce ourselves: we are Chocolate Cloud from Denmark, we use
erasure coding to improve storage solutions. We already have Reed-Solomon and Random Linear
Network Coding backends for Liberasurecode, and now we are at the final stage of developing
our RS plugin to HDFS-EC. The performance of our plugin is similar to ISA-L's, in some configurations
we are better, in others we are worse (our initial speed comparison charts can be found here:
> We would like our plugin to become officially supported in Hadoop 3.0. We can already
provide a preliminary version of our (native) library and a patch with the necessary glue
code for the next alpha release.
> I'd like to know your thoughts about whether it's possible and how it could be achieved.
> P.S: I'm happy to share more details if there's interest
