Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-342) Nutch commands log to nutch/logs/hadoop.logs by default
Date Sun, 07 Aug 2011 16:56:29 GMT


Chris Schneider commented on NUTCH-342:

Hi Lewis,

Wow! Quite a blast from the past. I'm afraid I'm no longer in a position to comment on Nutch
issues, as I'm now using Bixo instead.

Best Regards,

> If (by default) Nutch commands are going to send their output to a file named "hadoop.log",
then it seems like the default location for this file should be the same location where Hadoop
is putting its hadoop.log file (i.e., $HADOOP_LOG_DIR). Currently, if I set HADOOP_LOG_DIR
to a special location (via, this has no effect on where Nutch commands send
their output.
> Some would probably suggest that I could just set NUTCH_LOG_DIR to $HADOOP_LOG_DIR myself.
I still think that it should be defaulted this way in the nutch script. However, I'm unaware
of an elegant way to modify such Nutch environment variables anyway. The file
provides a convenient place to modify Hadoop environment variables, but doing the same for
Nutch environment variables presumably requires you to modify .bash_profile or a similar user
script file (which is the way I used to accomplish this kind of thing with Nutch 0.7).
