> When the log aggregation is on, write to each aggregated container log causes hflush()
to be called. For large clusters, this can creates a lot of fsync() calls for namenode. 
> We have seen 6-7x increase in the average number of fsync operations compared to 1.0.x
on a large busy cluster. Over 99% of fsync ops were for log aggregation writing to tmp files.
