Subject Re: hadoop/hdfs cache question, do client processes share cache?
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2015 19:58:45 GMT
Let's assume that hdfs maintains 3 replicas of the 256MB block, then all of
these 3 datanodes will have only one copy of the block in their respective
mem cache and thus avoiding the repeated i/o reads. This goes with the
centralized cache management policy of hdfs that also gives you an option
to pin 2 of these 3 blocks in cache and save the remaining 256MB of cache
space. Here's a link
the same.

Hope that helps.
