Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-466) Startup scripts will not start instances of Hadoop daemons w/different configs w/o setting separate PID directories
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2006 20:36:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-466?page=comments#action_12429521 ] 
            
Yoram Arnon commented on HADOOP-466:
------------------------------------

perhaps HADOOP_IDENT_STRING is not required any more, or is indeed harmful.
Having it enables running multiple instances on the same conf dir by running as different
users.
it may be ok for log/out files, to separate output from different runs, but for pid files
it's better to use the md5 without the string

> Configuration directories can be specified by either setting HADOOP_CONF_DIR or using
the --config command line option. However, the hadoop-daemon.sh script will not start the
daemons unless the PID directory is separate for each configuration.
> The issue is that the code for generating PID filenames is not dependent on the configuration
directory. While the PID directory can be changed in hadoop-env.sh, it seems a little unnecessary
to have this restriction.
