Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5620) discp can preserve modification times of files
Date Tue, 26 May 2009 20:26:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5620?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12713232#action_12713232
] 

Rodrigo Schmidt commented on HADOOP-5620:
-----------------------------------------

- Dhruba told me modification times of directories are not persistent, that is, on namenode
restart they are set to the latest modification time amongst the files they contain.

- If we get atime inside the if, it will be the copy time (last access after copying the file)
instead of the latest access time before copying, which is what we need for migration.

This helps to archive/unarchive hdfs files.
