Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6747) Display the most recent GC info on NN webUI
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2014 01:03:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6747?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14073916#comment-14073916

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-6747:

If people are using the Web UI to solve those problems, that's bad because it means that we
have an education problem.  Most of the pro Hadoop admins (including myself) configure the
system such that problems such as these are handled proactively via monitoring and metrics
collection.  Putting it on the NN UI is really just a "yup, my phone went off for a valid
reason" kind of thing.

Also, as [~esteban] points out, the *length* of the GC is more important that it *happened*.
In modern JREs configured with modern GC engines, they do collection all the time.

need to dig out GC logs.
