Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11794) Enable distcp to copy blocks in parallel
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 16:07:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11794?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15951193#comment-15951193

Yongjun Zhang commented on HADOOP-11794:
----------------------------------------

Welcome [~omkarksa], I will be working on backporting to other branches asap. Do you have
specific expectations?

Just to clarify, I did not mean not to consider supporting other file system, rather, I was
suggesting working on that as a separate jira. Your help on the testing out ADLS, together
with [~steve_l]'s suggestion about checking concat support (UnsupportedException) made it
easier for us to relax the file system constraint in this jira. So thank you guys again!

BTW, Steve still has an item for you to follow-up here:-)

Thanks.

> The minimum unit of work for a distcp task is a file. We have files that are greater
than 1 TB with a block size of  1 GB. If we use distcp to copy these files, the tasks either
take a long long long time or finally fails. A better way for distcp would be to copy all
the source blocks in parallel, and then stich the blocks back to files at the destination
via the HDFS Concat API (HDFS-222)
