Subject FSDataInputStream: setReadAhead, setDropBehind
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 14:22:58 GMT
I'm assuming that these methods exist to improve performance of certain I/O patterns, but the
API doc doesn't explain when one would use them.  Our software's I/O pattern is mostly sequential
I/O in large buffers (e.g. 256k).  Would one set these differently for local block I/O vs
remote block I/O?
