I'm not very clear about your senario, just a kindly reminder: "If security is on, the feature can be used only for user that has kerberos credentials at the client, therefore map reduce tasks cannot benefit from it in general", see HDFS-2246's release note for more info
If you didn't enable security at all, please ignore my comments:)

主题: RE: why my test result on dfs short circuit read is slower?
Did you mean set dfs.permissions to false?
Is that all I need to do to disable security feature? Cause It seems to me that without change dfs.block.local-path-access.user, dfs.permissions alone doesn't works. HBASE still fall back to go through datanode to read data.
