Subject [jira] [Created] (BIGTOP-502) Flume NG init script should pass --name "agent" instead of --name "<hostname>"
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 22:19:25 GMT
Flume NG init script should pass --name "agent" instead of --name "<hostname>"

                 Key: BIGTOP-502
             Project: Bigtop
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: General
    Affects Versions: 0.3.0
         Environment: [CentOS 5.7 64-bit]
            Reporter: Will McQueen
            Assignee: Bruno Mahé
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 0.3.0

The /etc/init.d/flume-ng-node init script currently passes this option:
     --name <hostname> /usr/bin/flume-ng, but the option needs to be a constant name, "agent" (literally, w/o
quotes), like this:
     --name agent

The reason is because Flume NG currently can't properly parse a dot-separated hostname because
dots are used as namepace delimiters. So instead we should probably hardcode it to the name
"agent" as the default name of the agent (while still retaining the ability to specify a different
node by specifying the FLUME_NODE_NAME).

Thank you.
