Hello guys:
      I have read [mcsrivas ppt][1], it compare the namenode implementation between HDFS and MapR.
    I still do not understand why disttributed name node is better than the central one.
    Where can I get all file information? Let client query each namenode?
    In slides 14, seems it is.
    Is there sample code for file sytem query?
