Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1933) Make unit on memory parameters case-insensitive
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 18:18:16 GMT


Sean Busbey commented on ACCUMULO-1933:

I think memory is something that's dealt with in a non-SI way on a sufficient number of other
systems that we should match the behavior of the other configurable components.

Nothing else I know of includes a unit marker for bytes themselves, so I'm less concerned
about matching. However, it is going to be confusing to many users for "b" to give them 1/8
the number they include, esp. if all the other units are insensitive. I don't think there's
a sufficient use case for specifying memory amounts in bits, so I'd prefer to just treat both
b and B as bytes.
