Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13975) Allow DistCp to use MultiThreadedMapper
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 23:25:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13975?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15819514#comment-15819514

Zheng Shao commented on HADOOP-13975:

Example usage:

bin/hadoop distcp -Dmapreduce.job.user.classpath.first=true -prbugp -m 2 -numThreadsPerMap
16 hdfs://sourcehdfs/srcdir hdfs://targethdfs/

Note that "Dmapreduce.job.user.classpath.first=true" is needed if you only update the client-side
hadoop-tools jar but not the server (YARN nodemanager) side yet.

> Although distcp allow users to control the parallelism via number of mappers, sometimes
it's desirable to run fewer mappers but more threads per mapper.  Since distcp is network
bound (either by throughput or more frequently by latency of creating connections, opening
files, reading/writing files, and closing files), this can make each mapper much more efficient.
> In that way, a lot of resources can be shared so we can save memory and connections to
