Subject Re: Block location in HDFS
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2012 15:01:54 GMT
Thanks for the answer,

My problem is slightly different, let say that I have 6 storage point and i
have 4 files/blocks to insert in the filesystem, i would like that these
blocks will be placed in 4 different storage points, and of course i would
like to do the same for all the next 4 blocks.  I'm not interested to the
replicas for the moment.
 Thanks
