Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1033) Rewrite AmazonEC2 wiki page
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2007 19:21:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1033?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12475441

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-1033:

At a minimum, the script-based instructions should move to the top of the page, with the gory
by-hand details either below, on a separate page, or deleted.  If the details become out-of-date
and un-maintained, then I'd vote to delete them.  It is not Hadoop's role to educate folks
generally about using Java on EC2.  Perhaps we can add links to the script's sources in subversion,
as up-to-date, detailed "documentation".

>                 Key: HADOOP-1033
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1033
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: contrib/streaming, scripts
>            Reporter: Tom White
>         Assigned To: Tom White
>            Priority: Minor
> The wiki page that describes running Hadoop on Amazon EC2 (http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-hadoop/AmazonEC2)
includes a large number of instructions for manually building images and launching instances
using EC2 tools. We now have a set of automated scripts for doing these tasks (see HADOOP-884,
HADOOP-952), so I propose removing the manual instructions (also, they are likely to become
inaccurate over time, and may make the idea of using Hadoop on EC2 daunting to new users).
> As a part of this I will keep the parts of the documentation that explain the concepts,
and document what the scripts do in more detail.
