Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-7689) Deprecate spark.cleaner.ttl
Date Sun, 17 May 2015 17:38:00 GMT
Josh Rosen created SPARK-7689:

             Summary: Deprecate spark.cleaner.ttl
                 Key: SPARK-7689
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Josh Rosen

With the introduction of ContextCleaner, I think there's no longer any reason for most users
to enable the MetadataCleaner / {{spark.cleaner.ttl}} (except perhaps for super-long-lived
Spark REPLs where you're worried about orphaning RDDs or broadcast variables in your REPL
history and having them never get cleaned up, although I think this is an uncommon use-case).
 I think that this property used to be relevant for Spark Streaming jobs, but I think that's
no longer the case since the latest Streaming docs have removed all mentions of {{spark.cleaner.ttl}}
for example).

for an old, related discussion.  Also, see, the PR
that introduced the new ContextCleaner mechanism.

We should probably add a deprecation warning to {{spark.cleaner.ttl}} that advises users against
using it, since it's an unsafe configuration option that can lead to confusing behavior if
it's misused.
