Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-226) DFSShell problems. Incorrect block replication detection in fsck.
Date Fri, 19 May 2006 19:11:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-226?page=comments#action_12412576 ] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-226:

We should not try to parse all command line options in one place.  A generic class should
parse out -D, -conf, -fs, etc. options, build a configuration, then the per-command class
should parse the rest of the command line.  That's what HADOOP-59 is about.  Commons CLI could
be used to implement the generic option parser and/or each command's option parser.

> 1. We need to adjust Dfsck to the new per-file replication feature.
> fsck checks block replication based on the configured global replication parameter.
> Which is now just the default. The actual file replication is returned in DFSFileInfo.
> So at least the reporting is screwed by that, although I didn't check what will happen
> other options -move and -delete.
> 2. fsck throws NullPointerException if you type
> bin/hadoop fsck -files /doc
> instead of
> bin/hadoop fsck /doc -files
> 3. Unfortunately, there are several commands that throw different kinds of Exceptions
> rather than at least printing the usage info, when some of its arguments are missing
> misplaced. ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is one them. Try
> bin/hadoop dfs -mv
> bin/hadoop dfs -cp
> bin/hadoop dfs -rm
> 4. In general the shell is growing and getting more sophisticated.
> Should we work out a general convention on how the parameters should be structured, named,
> short/long version of the keywords, help, etc.
