Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1623) Rename Accumulo's "Garbage Collector" to something less confusing
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2013 23:25:48 GMT


Eric Newton commented on ACCUMULO-1623:

If only there was a process that constantly scanned the metadata table looking for things
to do that wasn't the GC.  One required for an operational system.  One with an automated
warm standby.

But that's just crazy talk.

> Documentation and discussions about Accumulo's utility to clean up unused files in HDFS
can get a bit confusing, especially for Accumulo newbies. This is particularly problematic
when one needs to discuss things like the Java garbage collection trigger the Accumulo garbage
collector does each collection cycle to minimize memory usage and continue to collect candidates
for deletion.
