      Description

      The RaidNode currently iterates over the directory structure to figure out which files to RAID. With millions of files, this can take a long time - especially if some files are already RAIDed and the RaidNode needs to look at parity files / parity file HARs to determine if the file needs to be RAIDed.

      The directory traversal is encapsulated inside the class DirectoryTraversal, which examines one file at a time, using the caller's thread.

      My proposal is to make this multi-threaded as follows:

      • use a pool of threads inside DirectoryTraversal
      • The caller's thread is used to retrieve directories, and each new directory is assigned to a thread in the pool. The worker thread examines all the files the directory.
      • If there sub-directories, those are added back as workitems to the pool.
