> HDFS commands such as getContentSummary and delete require Ranger to authorize access
to entire directory hierarchy rooted at the directory passed in as argument. Ranger could
optimize this code by pruning the directory tree whenever a sub-directory, and directory hierarchy
rooted in it, is authorized for requested access. This could potentially save many spurious
authorization API calls with Ranger policy engine.
> Also, it will be useful to gather and log performance metrics for the Ranger authorization
API call for every Ranger plugin.
