HDFS and file modifications and Multiple writers

HDFS and file modifications and Multiple writers

Explorer

Hi

One of HDFS weak points is Multiple writers, arbitrary file modifications (as per Hadoop definitive guide 4th)

Any one can explain what is the meaning of files are written to HDFS by a single writer with append-only fashion ?

any examples for clarifiction?
