Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2551) hadoop-env.sh needs finer granularity
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 06:53:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2551?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12595992#action_12595992

Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on HADOOP-2551:

What happened with the idea of doing away with HADOOP_HEAPSIZE completely? The patch doesn't
have any fix for this. Track this on another JIRA?

Currently, if I specify both HADOOP_HEAPSIZE=500 and HADOOP_JOBTRACKER_OPTS=-Xmx1024m, both
get passed to jobtracker (JT command line: "java -Xmx500m -Xmx1024m .......") and the runtime
picks up the last value. So, it works for now, but it would have been cleaner had HADOOP_HEAPSIZE
been kicked of in entirety.

> We often configure our HADOOP_OPTS on the name node to have JMX running so that we can
do JVM monitoring.  But doing so means that we need to edit this file if we want to run other
hadoop commands, such as fsck.  It would be useful if hadoop-env.sh was refactored a bit so
that there were different and/or cascading HADOOP_OPTS dependent upon which process/task was
being performed.
