Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLUME-770) setting FLUME_IDENT_STRING based on $USER is not robust
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 15:43:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-770?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13121061#comment-13121061

Jonathan Hsieh commented on FLUME-770:
--------------------------------------

testing by running 

FLUME_HOME=. FLUME_LOG_DIR=. bin/flume-daemon.sh start node 

Looks good to me.  Thanks!

> The following bit of code from flume-daemon.sh fails to produce the correct result under
sudo-type of execution:
> if [ "$FLUME_IDENT_STRING" = "" ]; then
>   export FLUME_IDENT_STRING="$USER"
> fi
> This is because $USER is not always set for shell. A more robust solution would be to
use the output of id -nu
