Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1033) Rewrite AmazonEC2 wiki page
Date Sun, 25 Feb 2007 21:53:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1033?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12475759

Tom White commented on HADOOP-1033:

I have now updated the wiki with full instructions on how to use the scripts, as well as including
more detail on how they work. I've removed the old instructions from the page, replacing them
with a link to an archived copy. (It's very hard to throw away anything on the web!) Following
Doug's suggestion, I have also linked to the scripts in subversion.

I hope this addresses your objections, Jim. My aim in doing all the EC2 work has always been
to make running Hadoop on EC2 as easy as possible for users, who really just want to run their
application. Anyway, I'll not close this issue straightaway, so folks can have a chance to
register their opinion on the new wiki page...

(I've also made the 0.11.2 AMI public.)

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1033
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: contrib/streaming, scripts

>         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.
