Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1506) distcp not preserving the replication factor and block size of source files
Date Sat, 04 Aug 2007 00:12:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1506?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12517669
] 

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HADOOP-1506:
---------------------------------------------

What is the reason for keeping the same block size in the target file?
The target file system may have a different default block size.
Why do we want to go against the default in this case?
Ex. If we copy a file from ext2 with 1K blocks to ext3 with 8K blocks we are not trying to
preserve any block sizes.

> It would be nice if the source file and the target file have the same replication factor
and block size.
