Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-5809) Enhance distcp to support preserving HDFS ACLs.
Date Wed, 07 May 2014 07:45:53 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5809?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Chris Nauroth updated MAPREDUCE-5809:

    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-5809.4.patch

I'm attaching patch v4.  This implements Nicholas's suggestion to store the ACLs in the copy
listing file for use by {{CopyCommitter}}.  Additional changes to this patch will come after
we resolve HDFS-6326.

bq. If we cannot change FileStatus for backwards-compatibility, how about add new FileSystem
methods such as listStatusWithACL(..) which returns FileStatusWithACL?

I'd like to have a follow-up discussion about possibly adding batch APIs to improve distcp
performance, and this is one of them that I had in mind.  Can we please postpone this until
later, since it's a performance optimization and not a correctness issue?  The current patch
is already large, and adding new API definitions and the RPC calls to back them would likely
double it.
