Re: optimizing block cache requests + eviction
Good question. When I looked at the logs, it's not clear from it whether
it's reading a meta or data block. Is there any kind of log line that
indicates that ? Given that it's saying that it's ready from a startOffset
I would assume this is a data block.

A question that comes to mind, is this read doing a seek to that position
directly or is it going to cache the block ? Looks like it is not caching
the block if it's reading directly from a given offset. Or am I wrong ?

Following is a sample line that I used while debugging:
2013-07-08 22:58:55,221 DEBUG org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient: New
