Subject Re: Streaming sessions from BulkOutputFormat job being listed long after they were killed
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 17:36:03 GMT

There are several discussions and bug reports regarding streaming failure on jira.

Hanged streaming session will be left in memory unless you restart C*, but it does not cause
problem I believe.
