Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3246) FTP client over HDFS
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2008 21:43:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3246?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12593135#action_12593135

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-3246:
--------------------------------------

> Wouldn't this be done better as a FileSystem?

+1.  That makes sense to me.  If the goal is to load data from FTP servers into HDFS, or vice-versa,
then a FTP FileSystem implementation would permit both using existing tools like 'bin/hadoop
fs' and distcp.

> An FTP client that stores content directly into HDFS allows data from FTP serves to be
stored directly into HDFS instead of first copying the data locally and then uploading it
into HDFS. The benefits are apparent from an administrative perspective as large datasets
can be pulled from FTP servers with minimal human intervention.
