Re: Writing click stream data to hadoop
SequenceFile.Writer#syncFs is in Hadoop 1.0.0 (actually since
0.20.205), which calls the underlying FSDataOutputStream#sync which is
actually hflush semantically (data not durable in case of data center
wide power outage). hsync implementation is not yet in 2.0. HDFS-744
just brought hsync in trunk.
