Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-12665) [AliasMap] Create a version of the AliasMap that runs in memory in the Namenode (leveldb)

Ewan Higgs created HDFS-12665:

             Summary: [AliasMap] Create a version of the AliasMap that runs in memory in the
Namenode (leveldb)
                 Key: HDFS-12665
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-12665
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Ewan Higgs

The design of Provided Storage requires the use of an AliasMap to manage the mapping between
blocks of files on the local HDFS and ranges of files on a remote storage system. To reduce
load from the Namenode, this can be done using a pluggable external service (e.g. AzureTable,
Cassandra, Ratis). However, to aide adoption and ease of deployment, we propose an in memory

This AliasMap will be a wrapper around LevelDB (already a dependency from the Timeline Service)
and use protobuf for the key (blockpool, blockid, and genstamp) and the value (url, offset,
length, nonce). The in memory service will also have a configurable port on which it will
listen for updates from Storage Policy Satisfier (SPS) Coordinating Datanodes (C-DN).
