             Summary: Improved incremental data copy of distcp for truncated file
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-6572
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6572
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Yongjun Zhang
            Assignee: John Zhuge


MAPREDUCE-5899 improves distcp by supporting incremental data copy. That is, if a file is
only appended since it was copied last time, only new data need to be copied. 

This improvement was done before HDFS truncate feature (HDFS-3107) was implemented. Since
we support truncate, if a large file is truncated a little bit, the whole file will still
need to be copied, even with the solution of MAPREDUCE-5899.

Creating this jira to improve the situation, by possibly remembering the smallest truncated
size, so there is chance to only append from that size on.

Thanks.
