Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11909) Ozone: KSM : Support for simulated file system operations
Date Thu, 01 Jun 2017 07:45:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11909?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16032591#comment-16032591

Weiwei Yang commented on HDFS-11909:

Hi [~anu]

Thanks for initiating this, some general questions

# I am not sure how useful is that to differentiate file with dir in API, {{getSimulatedFiles}}
and {{getSimulatedDirectories}}. In file system they are all FileStatus. When we want to implement
listStatus, the most convenient API wanted would be a call simply returns all paths under
a path, along with an attribute to indicate itself a dir or a file. Otherwise we will end
up with calling 2 APIs here, less favored.
# I looks like we need a module to offer path <-> key convert, given a object key, it
would return a path and vice versa.
# How to deal with paths with extra slashes? E.g photos/2006/January/mike//, and photos/2006/January/mike/,
we don't want to list them as 2 different directories.
# How to handle FileSystem FsPermission in ozone? Maybe this is not the scope of this jira,
just curious to ask if this will be covered in the file system implementation.

Let me know if I am missing anything, thanks!
