    I have Yarn up running, but nodemanager/resourcemanager log is getting really big now 200mb – 300mb. Can someone point me to how to setup log rotation or archiving strategy?

    Hi Feng,

    This can be configure in the log4j.properties file in /etc/hadoop/conf/.
    Resourcemanger use RMSUMMARY as the log appender, so you can configure og4j.appender.RMSUMMARY.MaxFileSize= xxx MB.
    Nodemanger use RFA, so you can configure log4j.appender.RFA.MaxFileSize for the same.

    Hope this helps.
