Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-536) Clean up configuration options
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 06:00:24 GMT

Eli Reisman commented on GIRAPH-536:
------------------------------------

This has waited a long time. Great one! Absolutely needed for the release. Everyone gets confused
about this stuff, and it leaves a frustrated impression before folks have the chance to really
see what Giraph can do for them.

These details matter! Thanks for getting to this!!!

> Option names are all over the place, and I think they should be rationalized before we
cut the 0.2 release.
> Some examples:
> 1) Options that don't start with "giraph.*", like "partition.*".
> 2) Ambiguous naming: "giraph.numInputSplitsThreads" refers to worker input threads, "giraph.inputSplitThreadCount"
refers to threads used by the master to write splits to ZooKeeper.
> 3) Some options are defined in GiraphConstants, some other ones in the classes that use
them. We can find all of them by searching for "static final String".
> 4) "giraph.zKForceSync" and "giraph.ZkSkipAcl" use "yes"/"no" instead of true/false,
just because they are later used to write ZK configuration (which requires "yes"/"no"). I
think we should stick to true/false since these are Giraph options regardless.
