Subject [jira] [Commented] (LIBCLOUD-490) Zero-byte uploads to S3 fail
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2014 01:12:50 GMT

[~mahendra.m] Can you please look into this one?

It looks like a bug which happens when you try to upload a zero byte object using multipart
upload. I thought we've fixed this as part of LIBCLOUD-378, but this doesn't appear to be

Ideally (like we've talked in the past), we could avoid multipart upload stuff altogether
if the whole file is smaller than a minimum chunk size (5 MB). I know that because the way
code currently works, this might be easier said then done.

data that is small enough to fit in RAM (which in the case of an empty file is a bit of a
