Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-5247) FileInputFormat should filter files with '._COPYING_' sufix

-----------------------------------------

             Summary: FileInputFormat should filter files with '._COPYING_' sufix
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-5247
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5247
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Stan Rosenberg


FsShell copy/put creates staging files with '._COPYING_' suffix.  These files should be considered
hidden by FileInputFormat.  (A simple fix is to add the following conjunct to the existing
hiddenFilter: !name.endsWith("._COPYING_").)

After upgrading to CDH4.2.0 we got bitten by this. We have a legacy data loader which uses
'hadoop fs -put' to load data into hourly partitions.  We also have intra-hourly jobs which
are scheduled to execute several times per hour using the same hourly partition as input.
 Thus, as the new data is continuously loaded, these staging files (i.e., ._COPYING_) are
breaking our jobs (since when copy/put completes staging files are moved).

As a workaround, we've defined a custom input path filter and loaded it with "mapred.input.pathFilter.class".
