Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10759) Remove hardcoded JAVA_HEAP_MAX in hadoop-config.sh
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2014 15:04:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10759?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14089314#comment-14089314

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-10759:

After a bit more thinking about this idea, I have a proposal to make that I think will accomplish
the ultimate goal of this JIRA while also giving the users much more control than they have
now (a win-win):

# We introduce HADOOP_HEAPSIZE_MAX and HADOOP_HEAPSIZE_MIN, both default to empty.  They will
set the Xmx and Xms values, respectively.  Both require units to be provided, such that e.g.
HADOOP_HEAPSIZE_MAX="10g" is valid.
# We deprecate HADOOP_HEAPSIZE and JAVA_HEAP_MAX and completely remove them from the hadoop-env.sh,
etc. documentation.  The code should honor them if set (thereby providing backwards compatibility),
but the HADOOP_HEAPSIZE_xyz vars take precedence in case of a conflict.
# I'm willing to do this work as either part of HADOOP-9902 (which rewrites all of this code
anyway) or as part of the series of follow-on patches to that change, depending upon the review
for 9902.
