Subject RE: Restart Tablet Server process after machine reboot
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 15:27:39 GMT

I'll file a bug on this, but the way the etc_initd_accumulo script senses the accumulo install
directory isn't terribly robust.  For instance, I have accumulo installed in /home/cloud/cloud-dist/accumulo/accumulo-1.3.5-incubating/
.  The script senses /home/cloud/cloud-dist/accumulo as the ACCUMULO_HOME.  For the time being
in 1.3.5, you have to modify the script to use the proper ACCUMULO_HOME.

Yes, that's what the bin/etc_initd_accumulo script does.
ACCUMULO-312 is more specific: it allows for the configuration of a node simply by installing
the right package.  Install the accumulo-tserver package, and you're a tserver.  Install the
accumulo-master package and you are a master node.  And, when this all works, you can flexibly
just add more nodes without editing files containing lists of hostnames.  This will simplify
running accumulo in virtual environments, where nodes are added and removed as needed.

If you just want to automatically restart the appropriate servers on a configured node, bin/etc_initd_accumulo
should work.

We currently do not have any sort of start-time startup for any of our processes.
is for init.d scripts for that feature. So for now, the only way to restart any service on
boot up is manually, or via custom init.d script.

I didn't see anything in the documentation about this - am I missing it?  What's the best
practice for starting the tablet server process on reboot?

What about restarting the master processes (gc, monitor, etc.) if the master reboots?
