Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-2510) Make default location for logs in local mode /tmp
Date Sun, 18 May 2014 01:47:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-2510?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14000946#comment-14000946

Philip (flip) Kromer commented on PIG-2510:

I think the right path should be /tmp/pig-$USER/pig-log.log for the regular log, and /tmp/pig-$USER/pig-err.log
for the error dump. (This mirrors Hadoop's out-of-the-box choice.) Any directory you choose
will be subject to disk space concerns; that is _why_ /tmp is the correct default choice.
It's unambiguous to even the naive user that anything in /tmp is removable (in fact OSX wipes
it on reboot). It is also the first place you look and first place you wipe in a low disk
space condition. I lastly argue that anyone generating gigabytes of log volume should welcome
the reminder that Pig has settings any professional user knows to adjust :)

> I hate it when logs pile up in my directory, so I always run '-l /tmp' which seems to
be a good default directory for logs in local mode.
