> The {{conf/hbase-env.sh}} that ships with HBase contains a few commented out examples
of variables that could be useful, such as adding {{-XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCDateStamps}}
to {{HBASE_OPTS}}.  This has the annoying side effect that the JVM prints a summary of memory
usage when it exits, and it does so on stdout:
> {code}
> $ ./bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.HBaseConfTool hbase.cluster.distributed
> false
> Heap

> And this confuses {{bin/start-hbase.sh}} when it does
> {{distMode=`$bin/hbase --config "$HBASE_CONF_DIR" org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.HBaseConfTool
hbase.cluster.distributed`}}, because then the {{distMode}} variable is not just set to {{false}},
it also contains all this JVM spam.
> If you don't pay enough attention and realize that 3 processes are getting started (ZK,
HM, RS) instead of just one (HM), then you end up with this confusing error message:
> {{Could not start ZK at requested port of 2181.  ZK was started at port: 2182.  Aborting
as clients (e.g. shell) will not be able to find this ZK quorum.}}, which is even more puzzling
because when you run {{netstat}} to see who owns that port, then you won't find any rogue
process other than the one you just started.
> I'm wondering if the fix is not to just change the {{if [ "$distMode" == 'false' ]}}
to a {{switch $distMode case (false*)}} type of test, to work around this annoying JVM misfeature
that pollutes stdout.
