      Non-volatile storage class memory (SCM, also known as persistent memory) is supported in HDFS cache. To enable SCM cache, user just needs to configure SCM volume for property “dfs.datanode.cache.pmem.dirs” in hdfs-site.xml. And all HDFS cache directives keep unchanged. There are two implementations for HDFS SCM Cache, one is pure java code implementation and the other is native PMDK based implementation. The latter implementation can bring user better performance gain in cache write and cache read. If PMDK native libs could be loaded, it will use PMDK based implementation otherwise it will fallback to java code implementation. To enable PMDK based implementation, user should install PMDK library by referring to the official site http://pmem.io/. Then, build Hadoop with PMDK support by referring to "PMDK library build options" section in `BUILDING.txt` in the source code. If multiple SCM volumes are configured, a round-robin policy is used to select an available volume for caching a block. Consistent with DRAM cache, SCM cache also has no cache eviction mechanism. When DataNode receives a data read request from a client, if the corresponding block is cached into SCM, DataNode will instantiate an InputStream with the block location path on SCM (pure java implementation) or cache address on SCM (PMDK based implementation). Once the InputStream is created, DataNode will send the cached data to the client. Please refer "Centralized Cache Management" guide for more details.
