Setting the environment variable no longer has any effect, but the presence of the configuration is checked by the code which sets up zservers: if set, those servers to not create / write log or PID files. The environment variable *is* a fossil, whose former effects are now spelled out via configuration directives for the storage itself. We should remove the code which sets the environment variable, and update any docs which pretend that it is still effective. Please file a collector issue for this.
