Rakesh R commented on HADOOP-13715:

Thanks [~drankye] for the useful thoughts. I could see encryption feature has 
exposed APIs like, HdfsFileStatus has {{#getFileEncryptionInfo()}} exposed and 
FileStatus contains {{#isEncrypted()}} flag, to tell whether the underlying 
file or directory is encrypted or not. imho, EC could expose APIs in similar 

> Add isErasureCoded() API to FileStatus class

>  I would like to add a new API {{isErasureCoded()}} to {{FileStatus}} so that 
> tools and downstream applications can tell if it needs to treat a file 
> differently.
> Hadoop tools that can benefit from this effort include: distcp and 
> teragen/terasort.
> Downstream applications such as flume or hbase may also benefit from it.
