Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10015) UserGroupInformation prints out excessive ERROR warnings
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 18:39:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16090304#comment-16090304

Ben Roling commented on HADOOP-10015:

Just as a note for convenience to users of Cloudera's distribution - they have reverted this
change in CDH5:

I've opened a case with them to see why as I was mislead by WARN messages produced by UserGroupInformation
and had to spend some time looking into something that really wasn't an issue.

> In UserGroupInformation::doAs(), it prints out a log at ERROR level whenever it catches
an exception.
> However, it prints benign warnings in the following paradigm:
> {noformat}
>  try {
>         ugi.doAs(new PrivilegedExceptionAction<FileStatus>() {
>           @Override
>           public FileStatus run() throws Exception {
>             return fs.getFileStatus(nonExist);
>           }
>         });
>       } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
>       }
> {noformat}
> For example, FileSystem#exists() follows this paradigm. Distcp uses this paradigm too.
The exception is expected therefore there should be no ERROR logs printed in the namenode
> Currently, the user quickly finds out that the namenode log is quickly filled by _benign_
ERROR logs when he or she runs distcp in secure set up. This behavior confuses the operators.
> This jira proposes to move the log to DEBUG level.
