Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1933) Make unit on memory parameters case-insensitive
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 18:07:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1933?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13860425#comment-13860425

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1933:
---------------------------------------------

I added this convenience feature for memory units at the same time as the time units, which
are definitely SI. So, I guess there's a choice we have to make... do we want to try to stick
to SI for everything, or are memory units sufficiently distinct, to support a wider range
of (non-fractional) unit declarations?

Second, if we do think that memory units are sufficiently different, and to the extent that
it makes sense to support the case-insensitive JVM precedent, how do we deal with "b" vs.
"B" for bytes?

[~ted.m]: since you've expressed a willingness to work on this, what are your thoughts?

> {{config -t my_table -s table.split.threshold=2g}} fails with a non-intuitive error.
> {{config -t my_table -s table.split.threshold=2G}} succeeds
> It would be nice for both to work.
