Subject [jira] Updated: (MAPREDUCE-2372) TaskLogAppender mechanism shouldn't be set in log4j.properties
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2011 22:50:59 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2372?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated MAPREDUCE-2372:

    Attachment: mapreduce-2372.txt

Here's a patch which allows the settings to come directly from system properties.

Unfortunately, TLA isn't covered by any test cases yet, so nothing to change there.

We will need a patch on Common to remove the settings from log4j.properties as well.

> The TaskLogAppender log4j appender relies on using log4j.properties to pass in some Java
system properties into properties of the logger. This is problematic since we've often found
that users have customized log4j.properties and don't upgrade it when they upgrade the version
of Hadoop.
> Since this is really an internal mechanism of how the task runner passes task info to
the TLA, we shouldn't rely on these settings in log4j.properties at all. Rather, we should
just get the system properties directly from System.getProperty.
