Subject [jira] [Resolved] (IMPALA-1070) Incorrect Parameter Name in Documentation (dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout.millis)
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 22:43:01 GMT


Alexander Behm resolved IMPALA-1070.
    Resolution: Won't Fix

dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout.millis appears to be the correct modern option

says to configure a parameter 'dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout.millis' in
the hdfs-site.xml file, providing it with a value of '10000' (this appears under both the
'To configure DataNodes for short-circuit reads with CDH 4.2 or later' heading and the 'To
configure DataNodes for short-circuit reads with CDH 4.1' heading.

> I doublechecked my /etc/hadoop/conf/hdfs-site.xml and /etc/impala/conf/hdfs-site.xml
files and verified that I had configured the timeout parameter as described. 
> I then noticed a subtle but apparently important distinction. The error message is complaining
about a parameter named 'dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout' while the documentation
instructed me to set one named 'dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout.millis' (i.e.
the parameter in the log is missing the '.millis' on the end).
> After updating the /etc/hadoop/conf/hdfs-site.xml and /etc/impala/conf/hdfs-site.xml
files to set a parameter 'dfs.client.file-block-storage-locations.timeout' with a value of
10000, I restarted the impala-server daemon. It then worked as expected.
