>                 Key: HADOOP-2120
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2120
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: fs
>    Affects Versions: 0.14.3
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: Milind Bhandarkar
>             Fix For: 0.16.0

> dfs -getMerge, which calls FileUtil.CopyMerge, contains this javadoc:
> {code}
> Get all the files in the directories that match the source file pattern
>    * and merge and sort them to only one file on local fs 
>    * srcf is kept.
> {code}
> However, it only concatenates the set of input files, rather than merging them in sorted
order.
> Ideally, the copyMerge should be equivalent to a map-reduce job with IdentityMapper and
IdentityReducer with numReducers = 1. However, not having to run this as a map-reduce job
has some advantages, since it increases cluster utilization during reduce phase.
