Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-730) Local file system uses copy to implement rename
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 17:37:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-730?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12532173

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-730:
-------------------------------------

> Couldn't it try the renameTo() operation and if it fails then fallback to the slower
copy&delete method?

Sounds good to me.  That might provide a nice speedup too.  Care to provide a patch?

> There is a variable LocalFileSystem.useCopyForRename that is set to true. When true,
the local file system will implement rename as a copy followed by a delete. This is likely
a performance problem. Is there a reason that useCopyForRename is set?
