Subject Choice between LOG(FATAL) and EXIT(EXIT_FAILURE)
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 17:42:44 GMT

Can someone explain better about when we should use LOG(FATAL) and when
EXIT(EXIT_FAILURE) in Mesos codebase?

One thing is that EXIT(EXIT_FAILURE) does not seem to leave anything in the
level separated GLOG files so it could be mysterious to people who relies
on that for debugging issues.

I see we have about 100 call sites to LOG(FATAL) and 200 call sites
to EXIT(EXIT_FAILURE) at the moment.

Many thanks!
