Tim Owen commented on SOLR-13029:

hah, I wasn't suggesting automating that.. just how I manually tested it.

I've attached a newer patch, containing some unit tests for the various situations

> There's a default hardcoded buffer size setting of 4096 in the HDFS code which means in particular that restoring a backup from HDFS takes a long time. Copying multi-GB files from HDFS using a buffer as small as 4096 bytes is very inefficient. We changed this in our local build used in production to 256kB and saw a 10x speed improvement when restoring a backup. Attached patch simply makes this size configurable using a command line setting, much like several other buffer size values.
