Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1852) Reduce unnecessary DFSClient.rename() calls
Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 07:39:01 GMT


Joydeep Sen Sarma commented on HIVE-1852:

what happens when there are multiple srcs:

    srcs = fs.listStatus(srcf);
     for (FileStatus src : srcs) {
       if (!fs.rename(src.getPath(), tmppath)) {

we can't rename multiple sources to the same target. this happens when the input path is a
glob (which i think the load command allows).

can we special case this optimization (apply only when srcs.length == 1)?

> In Hive client side (MoveTask etc), DFSCleint.rename() is called for every file inside
a directory. It is very expensive for a large directory in a busy DFS namenode. We should
replace it with a single rename() call on the whole directory.
