-----------------------------------

             Summary: Flume NG pkg init script should allow user to customize the location
of the conf dir
                 Key: BIGTOP-566
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BIGTOP-566
             Project: Bigtop
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: General
    Affects Versions: 0.4.0
         Environment: all
            Reporter: Will McQueen
            Assignee: Bruno Mahé
             Fix For: 0.4.0


A typical Flume NG invocation is:
     bin/flume-ng --conf-file conf/flume-conf.properties.template  --conf conf --name agent1

...and the corresponding invocation after installing the Flume NG bigtop package would be:
     /usr/lib/flume-ng/bin/flume-ng --conf-file /etc/flume-ng/conf/flume.conf --conf /etc/flume-ng/conf
--name agent

The Flume NG init script, installed as part of Bigtop Flume NG, allows us to modify:
1) the --conf-file value (via FLUME_CONF_FILE)
2) the --name value (via FLUME_AGENT_NAME)

...but not the --conf value. So the user loses some flexibility when using Bigtop Flume NG
over Apache Flume NG.

I recommend that the /etc/init.d/flume-ng-agent script be modified to allow the user to set
FLUME_CONF_DIR. That is, in this init script, please change this:
     FLUME_CONF_DIR=/etc/flume-ng/conf
..to this:
     FLUME_CONF_DIR=${FLUME_CONF_DIR:-/etc/flume-ng/conf}
