Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-972) distcp can timeout during rename operation to s3
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 16:47:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-972?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12767377#action_12767377

Doug Cutting commented on MAPREDUCE-972:

> Extending the FileSystem API is a non-starter [ ... ]

Isn't the FileSystem API mid-rewrite right now in HADOOP-6223?  So now might actually be the
rare time to consider something like this.  It's unfortunate that Rename.Options is an Enum,
so it'd be hard to add a progress function there without changing that.  Perhaps Rename.Options.OVERWRITE
could still be a constant, but Rename.Options#createProgress(Progressible) could return a
subclass of Rename.Options that wraps a Progressible or somesuch.  I don't mean to push this
approach, rather just to question whether it should be ruled out completely.  If it seems
reasonable for file rename implementations to take a long time, then adding a progress callback
might be a reasonable approach.

> rename() in S3 is implemented as copy + delete. The S3 copy operation can perform very
slowly, which may cause task timeout.
