Feature request - Change temp directory location for Hue Compress Files in HDFS

Explorer

This is a feature request to add a configuration option to change the temporary directory for compressing files in HDFS via Hue. Currently this directory is hardcoded to /tmp (local not HDFS) on whichever node the compress job is running on. This is a problem if /tmp does not have sufficient space relative to the size of the HDFS data being compressed.

 

Hue offers the ability to compress files in HDFS as follows:

 

  1. Select one or more HDFS files in the Hue File Browser.
  2. On the Actions menu select the Compress option.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
