Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2328) Make important configurations more obvious to new users
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2010 06:10:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2328?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12931333#action_12931333

stack commented on HBASE-2328:

I added in Ryans comments and then do more fixup on the book.  I think enough has been done
on this that we can move this out of 0.90 and address as we go forward.  Bring the issue back
in if anyone things otherwise.

> Over the last 2 weeks, I encountered many situations where people didn't set file descriptors
and xcievers higher and that was causing a ton of problems that are hard to debug if you're
not used to them. To improve that we should:
>  - Refuse to start HBase if ulimit -n returns some small number smaller than 2048, or
at least print out in big red blinking letters that the current configuration is bad and then
link to a simple troubleshooting entry on the wiki.
>  - Write a clearer Getting Started document where we don't give as much explanations
but add more stuff like "this is what your hbase-site.xml/hdfs-site/xml should look like now"
and give a complete file example. At this point we don't even give a number for xcievers and
we expect new users to come up with one.
> Any other low hanging fruit others can think of?
