Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-800) More improvements to DFS browsing WI
Date Fri, 11 May 2007 18:18:36 GMT
(c) -- the file browsing page should NOT  automatically refresh
it is kind of strange that you cannot reproduce it.  I see it all the  
time (the file viewer page gets updated at some interval.  As the  
content of the file is in a text box, the position is reset to the  
top of block.  Which is annoying).   Not that this is FILE VIEWER  
page.  The original description say "file browser" which may be  

(d) -- in FILE VIEWER page, display the content in the page, rather  
than in a text box.
may be this can be provided as an option?  E.g. setting a checkbox in  
the directory viewing page?
Or maybe it is possible to make sure that the text box is as wide as  
the window?  This would provide the similar functionality.   Although  
it would be nice to turn wrapping off.
In so many cases, the narrow text window makes it impossible to look  
at the data, and one has to "fds -cat | less" instead, which kind of  
defeats the purpose of the UI.

(x) While here:  it would be so nice to add the CURRENT TIME to all  
the pages.
For naive users like myself, understanding universal time is very  
difficult.  So knowing what the cluster thinks about current time  
makes it so much easier to understand when a job has actually started  
or ended....
