      Description

      The namenode spends about 10 minutes reading in a 14 GB fsimage file into memory and creating all the in-memory data structures. A jstack based debugger clearly shows that most of the time during the fsimage load is spent in BlocksMap.checkBlockInfo. There is a easy way to optimize this method especially for this code path.
