Re: Locks in HDFS
HDFS does not have such a client-side feature, but your applications
can use Apache Zookeeper to coordinate and implement this on their own
- it can be used to achieve distributed locking. While at ZooKeeper,
also checkout https://github.com/Netflix/curator which makes using it
for common needs very easy.
