      Description

      Many of time, we need to count the total number of blocks in a datanode by calling DatanodeDescriptor#numBlocks(). It has to traverse the block list to get the counter, which may not be trivial if there are millions of blocks. Adding a counter for each datanode does not cost much space but help save CPU processing time.
