    -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/hadoop/lib/native -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/hadoop/lib/native
    -server -XX:ParallelGCThreads=8 -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC

    The startup script /usr/lib/hadoop/sbin/ calls /usr/lib/hadoop/libexec/ which add some parameters like JAVA_HEAP_MAX=-Xmx1000m and calls /etc/hadoop/conf/
    /etc/hadoop/conf/ is then called again …
