Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3788) distcp can't copy large files using webhdfs due to missing Content-Length header
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2012 23:33:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3788?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13434634#comment-13434634

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-3788:

> I believe it's legitimate to send a content-length (if known) with a chunked response.

I believe it is not.  See below from http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec4.html#sec4.4

bq. The Content-Length header field MUST NOT be sent if these two lengths are different (i.e.,
if a Transfer-Encoding header field is present)

> I think a test case would be invaluable since the file size issue has reared itself a
few times. Could you add a test that uses a mock?

I did have a mock test but it requires changing DatanodeWebHdfsMethods.  I don't see an easy
way to have mock tests without changing the main code.  Do you have any idea?  If yes, could
you add the tests?

> The following command fails when data1 contains a 3gb file. It passes when using hftp
or when the directory just contains smaller (<2gb) files, so looks like a webhdfs issue
with large files.
> {{hadoop distcp webhdfs://eli-thinkpad:50070/user/eli/data1 hdfs://localhost:8020/user/eli/data2}}
