Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-13095) Improve slice tree traversal implementation
Date Wed, 31 Jan 2018 19:33:00 GMT
Rakesh R created HDFS-13095:

             Summary: Improve slice tree traversal implementation
                 Key: HDFS-13095
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-13095
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Rakesh R
            Assignee: Rakesh R

This task is to refine the existing slice tree traversal logic in [ReencryptionHandler|https://github.com/apache/hadoop/blob/trunk/hadoop-hdfs-project/hadoop-hdfs/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hdfs/server/namenode/ReencryptionHandler.java#L74] class.

Please refer Daryn's review comments
 I need to study this more but I have grave concerns this will work correctly in a mutating
namesystem.  Ex. renames and deletes esp. in combination with snapshots. Looks like there's
a chance it will go off in the weeds when backtracking out of a renamed directory.

traverseDir may NPE if it's traversing a tree in a snapshot and one of the ancestors is deleted.

Not sure why it's bothering to re-check permissions during the crawl.  The storage policy
is inherited by the entire tree, regardless of whether the sub-contents are accessible. 
The effect of this patch is the storage policy is enforced for all readable files, non-readable
violate the new storage policy, new non-readable will conform to the new storage policy. 
Very convoluted.  Since new files will conform, should just process the entire tree.
