> Currently Distcp uploads a file by two strategies
> # append parts
> # copy to temp then rename
> option 2 executes the following sequence in {{promoteTmpToTarget}}
> {code}
>     if ((fs.exists(target) && !fs.delete(target, false))
>         || (!fs.exists(target.getParent()) && !fs.mkdirs(target.getParent()))
>         || !fs.rename(tmpTarget, target)) {
>       throw new IOException("Failed to promote tmp-file:" + tmpTarget
>                               + " to: " + target);
>     }
> {code}
> For any object store, that's a lot of HTTP requests; for S3A you are looking at 12+ requests and an O(data) copy call.
> This is not a good upload strategy for any store which manifests its output atomically at the end of the write().
> Proposed: add a switch to write directly to the dest path, which can be supplied as either a conf option (distcp.direct.write = true) or a CLI option (-direct).
