Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6988) Add support for reading multiple hadoop delegation token files
Date Tue, 05 Oct 2010 20:12:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6988?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12918145#action_12918145
] 

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-6988:
---------------------------------------

The environment variable should *not* be multi-valued. It is used to communicate the job's
token store to sub-processes of the task. Since a task can't be in more than one job, there
isn't any need.

What is the use case for having multiple token files? The rest of the lists use commas, so
this should be the same. Wouldn't it be easier to write a tool that allows you to combine
multiple token files together into a single one?

> It would be nice if there were a way to specify multiple delegation token files via the
HADOOP_TOKEN_FILE_LOCATION environment variable and the "mapreduce.job.credentials.binary"
configuration value. I suggest a colon-separated list of paths, each of which is read as a
separate delegation token file.
