Ravi Prakash commented on HADOOP-8065:

Hi Yongjun!

Thanks for rebasing the patch and your polishing touches. I think HADOOP-13114 might be the
more appropriate JIRA for these changes (which Suraj kindly filed at my request earlier.)
since this patch does not compress *during* transfer; only after transfer and before writing
to HDFS.
- {{getCompressionCodcec}} has the same typo I pointed out to Suraj. He did post updated patches
on HADOOP-13114. I apologize for neglecting to review those patches despite Suraj's requests.
- {{getCompressionCodcec}} also uses ReflectionUtils. I don't know if it'd be better to use
[this pattern|https://github.com/apache/hadoop/blob/b4f1971ff1dd578353036d7a123fe83c27c1e803/hadoop-mapreduce-project/hadoop-mapreduce-client/hadoop-mapreduce-client-core/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/mapred/lib/CombineFileInputFormat.java#L159]
- We're still not using a CodecPool like I suggested earlier. The patch in HADOOP-13114 actually
is. Let me rebase and upload that. Could you please take a look at that?

> We would like compress the data while transferring from our source system to target system.
One way to do this is to write a map/reduce job to compress that after/before being transferred.
This looks inefficient. 
> Since distcp already reading writing data it would be better if it can accomplish while
doing this. 
> Flip side of this is that distcp -update option can not check file size before copying
data. It can only check for the existence of file. 
> So I propose if -compress option is given then file size is not checked.
> Also when we copy file appropriate extension needs to be added to file depending on compression
