Re: DFSOutputStream.sync() method latency time
Thanks Yanbo for your reply.

I  test code are :
        FSDataOutputStream outputStream = fs.create(path);
        Random r = new Random();
        long totalBytes = 0;
        String str =  new String(new byte[1024]);
        while(totalBytes < 1024 * 1024 * 500) {
          byte[] bytes = ("start_"+r.nextLong() +"_" + str +
r.nextLong()+"_end" + "\n").getBytes();
          totalBytes = totalBytes + bytes.length;
The write method and sync method is synchronized, so the two method is not

The write method write data to memory of client, the sync method send
package to pipelien,  client can execute write  method  until the  sync
method return sucess,  so I  think the sync method latency time should be
equal with superposition of each datanode operation.
