>>FileSystem is an abstract class, what concrete class are you using (DistributedFileSystem, etc) ?
Good point. I am calling FileSystem.get(URI uri, Configuration conf) with an URI like "hdfs://server:port/..." on a remote server, so I assume it is creating a DistributedFileSystem. However I am not finding any documentation discussing its thread-safety (or lack thereof), perhaps you can point me to it?
