Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6051) distcp does not skip copying file if we are updating single file
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2009 18:04:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6051?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12721384#action_12721384

------------------------------------------------

> I guess we need to change the doc. OR Do we really need to change the behaviour of distcp
?

Thanks for checking this Ravi.  The doc actually is not clear about copying a single file,
which, as always, is a not-so-useful special case.  We have freedom to do either way.  It
is probably better to minimize the code complexity since distcp is already complicated enough.

> distcp doesn't skip copying file when we do -update on single file if the destfile already
exists.
> When we do 
> hadoop distcp -update srcfilename destfilename
> it seems to be comparing checksums of srcfilename and destfilename/srcfilename and so
skip is not done. It should compare checksums of srcfilename and destfilename.
