Subject Re: How to configure mapreduce archive size?
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 04:34:52 GMT
You can limit the size by setting local.cache.size in the mapred-site.xml
(or core-site.xml if that works for you). I mistakenly mentioned
mapred-default.xml in my last mail - apologies for that. However, please
note that this does not prevent whatever is writing into the distributed
cache from creating those files when they are required. After they are
done, the property will help cleanup the files due to the limit set.

That's why I am more keen on finding what is using the files in the
Distributed cache. It may be useful if you can ask on the HBase list as
well if the APIs you are using are creating the files you mention (assuming
you are only running HBase jobs on the cluster and nothing else)

Thanks
