Subject Generation Stamp
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2011 14:14:09 GMT
Hi all,
Why is there the concept of Generation Stamp that is getting tagged to the
metadata of the block.? How is it useful? I have seen that in the hdfs
current directory, the metafiles are tagged with this generation stamp.
Does this keep track of the versioning?
