Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-13936) multipart upload to HDFS to support 0 byte upload
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2018 13:52:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-13936?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16625847#comment-16625847

Ewan Higgs commented on HDFS-13936:

Right, but you could touch a file with no implication of the file being open. This is used
in HDFS for sentinel files (not usually used for files you would want to concat).
hdfs dfs -touch /empty-file{code}

The best option seems to be to check if there is only a single part and if that single part
is empty, just touch the destination.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: fs, hdfs
>    Affects Versions: 3.2.0
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Assignee: Ewan Higgs
>            Priority: Major
> MPUs to HDFS fail as you can't concat an empty block. 
> Whatever uploads to HDFS needs to recognise that specific case "0-byte file" and rather
than try and concat things, just create a 0-byte file there.
> Without this, you can't use MPU as a replacement for distcp or alternative commit protocols.
