Subject [jira] Created: (CHUKWA-527) stronger configuration checking
Date Wed, 29 Sep 2010 20:45:35 GMT
stronger configuration checking

                 Key: CHUKWA-527
             Project: Chukwa
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: data collection, documentation
            Reporter: Ari Rabkin
            Assignee: Ari Rabkin

Chukwa has many configuration options, and it's easy to mis-set them.  I'd like to contribute
a module for doing stronger static checks of configuration at startup. 

In particular, this will flag and log cases where:
  An option is set in the Chukwa config files that is never read by Chukwa.
  A non-numeric value is used for a numeric parameter, non-boolean value for boolean parameter,

The table of options and types is automatically generated and then human-checked. It should
be easy to keep it up to date.
The changes to the Chukwa codebase should be quite modest: one new Jar, and a handful of lines
to invoke that Jar on startup.

Does this sound like a thing people would like to see?
