Chen Liang commented on HDFS-12943:

[~lindy_hopper] access time update is a write call so it can not be processed 
by Observer. Access time should be turned off on Observer, as mentioned in

> StandbyNode in HDFS is a replica of the active NameNode. The states of the 
> NameNodes are coordinated via the journal. It is natural to consider 
> StandbyNode as a read-only replica. As with any replicated distributed system 
> the problem of stale reads should be resolved. Our main goal is to provide 
> reads from standby in a consistent way in order to enable a wide range of 
> existing applications running on top of HDFS.
