Paul Rogers updated DRILL-4737:
    Issue Type: Improvement  (was: Bug)

> Adjust drill-env.sh instructions to reflect config/site directories
> -------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: DRILL-4737
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4737
>             Project: Apache Drill
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.0
>            Reporter: Paul Rogers
>            Priority: Minor
> See https://drill.apache.org/docs/starting-drill-in-distributed-mode/
> Requires a number of changes to reflect Drill's support of a configuration directory
as specified by:
> drillbit.sh --config /path/to/config/dir cmd
> "The default memory for a Drillbit is 8G, but Drill prefers 16G" The default *direct*
memory for Drill is 8G. The default total memory for Drill is 12G. (Included 4G heap.)
> "Drillbit startup script located in <drill_installation_directory>/conf/drill-
> env.sh." The location is $SITE_DIR/drill-env.sh. $SITE_DIR is either:
> 1. $DRILL_HOME/conf by default (as stated in the docs), or
> 2. Specified by the --config <site_dir> option to drillbit.sh
> "edit the XX:MaxDirectMemorySize parameter". Please show how to do this. The correct
form (to work with YARN) is:
> Where the new value replaces the "8G". (This is different than the pre-1.8 form.)
> "If this parameter is not set, the limit depends on the amount of available system memory."
This has never turned out to be true as the script always provides a default value.
> Another point: Drill assumes all nodes have the same amount of memory. Relying on system
memory will not, in general, work as some Drillbits (with less system memory) will die with
OOM errors. I suspect this is why a default setting is always provided.
> "After you edit <drill_installation_directory>/conf/drill-env.sh" change to "After
you edit drill-env.sh" to avoid repeating the path.
