Subject POSIX vs HDFS
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 10:53:20 GMT

Quoted from *HDFS Architecture

"HDFS relaxes a few POSIX requirements to enable streaming access to file
> system data."

I wanted to get a list of POSIX semantics which have been relaxed (or
ignored) in HDFS. Is there any documentation on POSIX vs HDFS? If not, I
would like to document that and would appreciate if I can get some pointers.
