Using the NFS Gateway with ViewFs

You can use the NFS Gateway to export federated namespaces that are available as ViewFs mounts. You can access multiple ViewFs mounts simultaneously using a single NFS Gateway and perform operations on them.

Considerations for using NFS Gateway with ViewFs

  • You can use NFS Gateway to export only those ViewFs mounts that have HDFS as the underlying file system.
  • The ViewFs root cannot be mounted.
  • Files and directories cannot be renamed across mounts.
