Subject Re: Regarding Hadoop Log Retention for Hadoop 0.20.2
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2011 08:58:44 GMT

IIRC, "mapred.userlog.retain.hours" (24h default) controls this in my
environment and it seems to work fine on my cluster. Are you sure you
have tasklogs older than 24h lying around? It might even be a bug that
may have been fixed in the subsequent 0.20 releases that went out
