      Description

      One of the dominant workloads for external metadata services is listing of partition directories. This canĀ end up being bottlenecked on RTT time when partition directories contain a small number of files. This is fairly common, since fine-grained partitioning is used for partition pruning by the query engines.

      A batched listing API that takes multiple paths amortizes the RTT cost. Initial benchmarks show a 10-20x improvement in metadata loading performance.
