Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-15606) FSDataInputStream/FSInputStream to implement getFileLength()
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2018 12:58:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-15606?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16675101#comment-16675101

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-15606:

Proposed: add an interface for this so that other streams can implement it too

>                 Key: HADOOP-15606
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-15606
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: fs, fs/s3
>    Affects Versions: 3.1.0
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Priority: Major
> server-side transcoding, predicate-pushdown filtering in storage, client-side decryption
can all result in an input stream shorter or longer than the file size as measured in getFileStatus/listFiles/listStatus.

> Assuming the length is known once open() returns, the FSDataInputStream can return the
length of the data, which can then be used for accurate seeks within the data.
> * requires the streams to know their length; easy to check (hasCapabilities), or make
the new method return an Optional<Long>, but caller will need to (a) look for this if
present and (b) fall back.
> * Could be rolled out for all our own clients/connectors, would take time for others
