> When copying files between 2 clusters with different default block-sizes, one sees that
the copy fails with a checksum-mismatch, even though the files have identical contents.
> The reason is that on HDFS, a file's checksum is unfortunately a function of the block-size
of the file. So you could have 2 different files with identical contents (but different block-sizes)
have different checksums. (Thus, it's also possible for DistCp to fail to copy files on the
same file-system, if the source-file's block-size differs from HDFS default, and -pb isn't
> I propose that we skip checksum comparisons under the following conditions:
> 1. -skipCrc is specified.
> 2. File-size is 0 (in which case the call to the checksum-servlet is moot).
> 3. source.getBlockSize() != target.getBlockSize(), since the checksums are guaranteed
to differ in this case.
> I have a patch for #3.
