Currently, users needs to run refresh/invalidate metadata to update metadata when data (files, blocks) and/or metadata (tables, partitions) are modified externally. These operation cause many consistency and performance issues. We should add external metadata notification mechanism (e.g. inotify or HMS listeners) so that the catalog server can automatically sync metadata as they change.
