Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6287) Support units for configuration knobs
Date Mon, 28 Sep 2009 10:48:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6287?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12760211#action_12760211
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-6287:
----------------------------------------

Also, what happens when you try to getInt() a value that is out of range of an integer? I
believe historically Integer.parseInt() would throw a NumberFormatException which would lead
to the default. Trying to cast a long to an int may be a different behaviour.

# Tests need to establish what the current behaviour is
# New code needs to maintain that behaviour -if everyone agrees that the old behaviour was
the correct one.

> We should add support for units in our Configuration system so that we can specify values
to be *1GB* or *1MB* rather than forcing every component which consumes such values to be
aware of these.
