Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7307) Remove Dr Who references
Date Thu, 19 May 2011 22:55:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7307?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036553#comment-13036553

Cesar Delgado commented on HADOOP-7307:

As an operations person this was horrible the first time it came up.  Seeing a user that is
not supposed to be in your system and was not created by anyone can cause a huge panic and
waste a lot of time.  The error should be thrown with the correct user and group (not Tardis)
for the process on the system (ie. *NIX user and group)

Errors should be clear and concise.  I'm ok with looking at manuals for extra information
but, like Todd said, "just google it" is not an option in most data-centers.

> I've had feedback from a number of different operators that the "dr who" references that
occasionally come out of Hadoop are annoying and confusing. We should replace them with more
descriptive error messages, usernames, etc.
