Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11615) FSNamesystemLock metrics can be inaccurate due to millisecond precision

------------------------------------

Hi Erik,

What's your proposal for new names? I'm guessing that the monitoring tools out there already
understand a Hadoop MutableRate, so changing the names (even if it's awkward) will mean more
work for them.

Chances are these monitoring tools also support displaying a separate human-friendly name,
so again it might not be important for the raw JMX output to be very human readable.

> Currently the {{FSNamesystemLock}} metrics created in HDFS-10872 track the lock hold
time using {{Timer.monotonicNow()}}, which has millisecond-level precision. However, many
of these operations hold the lock for less than a millisecond, making these metrics inaccurate.
We should instead use {{System.nanoTime()}} for higher accuracy.
