hdfs dfs -count [-q]
hdfs dfs -count hdfs:// hdfs://

Copies one or more files from a specified source to a specified destination. If you specify multiple sources, the specified destination must be a directory.
hdfs dfs -cp URI [URI …]
hdfs dfs -cp /user/hadoop/file1 /user/hadoop/file2 /user/hadoop/dir
