where can i get a copy of DISTCP2

New Contributor

I've got HDP 2.6 installed and i see a bit of documentation on DISTCP2 being able to copy inter-cluster.

I hear Falcon's falling out of favor and I want to use DISTCP2.

Where can I download the JAR/Package/Source/whatever for it?

@James Liu - distcp2 is the default with Mapreduce2. It is not called distcp2, but just distcp.

Distcp2 is the default and only distcp available in MR2. The command 'hadoop distcp' in MR2 runs on distcp2 automatically.

I believe HDP 2.X onwards, we have distcp2 by default in backend for hadoop distcp command.

Tagging HDFS engineers here just to confirm this thing.
