Which operating systems does you Hadoop systems run on top of? We use RedHat, although we make a fair amount of custom RPMs. It's just too much having to deal with Gentoo while maintaining high performance filesystems and schedulers, which are apparently a real pain. Whilst research, I ran

Also, when setting up a new system, make USE flag changes gradually. Unless you are sure of what you are doing, only change a few at a time. Haha, just got frustrated with how much junk is on my machine and globally disabled perl, python, ruby, and a bunch of other stuff. Bad times ensued ;).

I've had some problems with this in the past on non-hardened... you have IA32 emulation turned on in the kernel right? Also, not sure if this is just me, but the really long lines (like the top 4) run off the end of my screen and I can't see them at all. Alec On Tue 22 Jul 2014 09:48:54 AM
