Subject Recent Commits - things to watch out for if you're upgrading
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 19:36:18 GMT
Hey Guys,

I've had a couple of questions about the commits that went in last night.
 Some things changed in configuration that people should be aware of.  They
are as follows:

- drill-override.conf is basically empty.  A sample drill-override is
available as well to see what some settings are that are available.  You
should move to this setup only migrate any settings that you have changed
from previous defaults.
- If you use your old settings, you'll likely to encounter a Zookeeper
exception.  This is because the drill.exec.zk.root no longer supports have
a leading slash (e.g. /drill).  To make it work, you need to either follow
the recommendation above or remove the leading slash.
- views, storage plugins and system settings are persisted across drillbit
- view are persisted in writable workspaces (default one is dfs.tmp) as
json files called viewname.view.drill.
- Storage plugins and other drill settings are stored in a Drill PStores (a
persistent store for settings information).  In embedded mode they are
persisted to the local file system.  By default, in daemon/distributed
mode, they are stored in zookeeper.  In daemon/distributed mode, you can
also store them in HBase if you have that available as part of your cluster.
- In order to configure storage plugins, you need to use the web ui at
- By default, Drill is initially populated with
bootstrap-storage-plugins.json in your classpath (Drill packages one in one
of the jars or you can put your own earlier in the classpath).  Once the
first node comes up and populates the storage plugin configuration, Drill
no longer uses or considers this file.

Let me know if there are other questions or issues that come up.  Also, be
sure to do a full clean build with this so you don't have any old/new file
