hadoop.tmp.dir/tmp/hadoop-${user.name}A base for other temporary directories.
hadoop.native.libtrueShould native hadoop libraries, if present, be used.
hadoop.http.filter.initializersA comma separated list of class names. Each class in the list must extend org.apache.hadoop.http.FilterInitializer. The corresponding Filter will be initialized. Then, the Filter will be applied to all user facing jsp and servlet web pages. The ordering of the list defines the ordering of the filters.
hadoop.security.group.mappingorg.apache.hadoop.security.ShellBasedUnixGroupsMappingClass for user to group mapping (get groups for a given user)
hadoop.security.authorizationfalseIs service-level authorization enabled?
hadoop.security.authenticationsimplePossible values are simple (no authentication), and kerberos
hadoop.security.token.service.use_iptrueControls whether tokens always use IP addresses. DNS changes will not be detected if this option is enabled. Existing client connections that break will always reconnect to the IP of the original host. New clients will connect to the host's new IP but fail to locate a token. Disabling this option will allow existing and new clients to detect an IP change and continue to locate the new host's token.
hadoop.security.use-weak-http-cryptofalseIf enabled, use KSSL to authenticate HTTP connections to the NameNode. Due to a bug in JDK6, using KSSL requires one to configure Kerberos tickets to use encryption types that are known to be cryptographically weak. If disabled, SPNEGO will be used for HTTP authentication, which supports stronger encryption types.
hadoop.logfile.size10000000The max size of each log file
hadoop.logfile.count10The max number of log files
io.file.buffer.size4096The size of buffer for use in sequence files. The size of this buffer should probably be a multiple of hardware page size (4096 on Intel x86), and it determines how much data is buffered during read and write operations.
io.bytes.per.checksum512The number of bytes per checksum. Must not be larger than io.file.buffer.size.
io.skip.checksum.errorsfalseIf true, when a checksum error is encountered while reading a sequence file, entries are skipped, instead of throwing an exception.

The uri's scheme determines the config property (fs.SCHEME.impl) naming the FileSystem implementation class. The uri's authority is used to determine the host, port, etc. for a filesystem.
fs.trash.interval0Number of minutes between trash checkpoints. If zero, the trash feature is disabled.

fs.checkpoint.dir${hadoop.tmp.dir}/dfs/namesecondaryDetermines where on the local filesystem the DFS secondary name node should store the temporary images to merge. If this is a comma-delimited list of directories then the image is replicated in all of the directories for redundancy.
fs.checkpoint.edits.dir${fs.checkpoint.dir}Determines where on the local filesystem the DFS secondary name node should store the temporary edits to merge. If this is a comma-delimited list of directoires then teh edits is replicated in all of the directoires for redundancy. Default value is same as fs.checkpoint.dir
fs.checkpoint.period3600The number of seconds between two periodic checkpoints.
fs.checkpoint.size67108864The size of the current edit log (in bytes) that triggers a periodic checkpoint even if the fs.checkpoint.period hasn't expired.

fs.s3.buffer.dir${hadoop.tmp.dir}/s3Determines where on the local filesystem the S3 filesystem should store files before sending them to S3 (or after retrieving them from S3).
fs.s3.maxRetries4The maximum number of retries for reading or writing files to S3, before we signal failure to the application.
fs.s3.sleepTimeSeconds10The number of seconds to sleep between each S3 retry.
local.cache.size10737418240The limit on the size of cache you want to keep, set by default to 10GB. This will act as a soft limit on the cache directory for out of band data.

io.seqfile.lazydecompresstrueShould values of block-compressed SequenceFiles be decompressed only when necessary.

io.mapfile.bloom.size1048576The size of BloomFilter-s used in BloomMapFile. Each time this many keys is appended the next BloomFilter will be created (inside a DynamicBloomFilter). Larger values minimize the number of filters, which slightly increases the performance, but may waste too much space if the total number of keys is usually much smaller than this number.
io.mapfile.bloom.error.rate0.005The rate of false positives in BloomFilter-s used in BloomMapFile. As this value decreases, the size of BloomFilter-s increases exponentially. This value is the probability of encountering false positives (default is 0.5%).
hadoop.util.hash.typemurmurThe default implementation of Hash. Currently this can take one of the two values: 'murmur' to select MurmurHash and 'jenkins' to select JenkinsHash.

ipc.client.tcpnodelayfalseTurn on/off Nagle's algorithm for the TCP socket connection on the client. Setting to true disables the algorithm and may decrease latency with a cost of more/smaller packets.
webinterface.private.actionsfalse If set to true, the web interfaces of JT and NN may contain actions, such as kill job, delete file, etc., that should not be exposed to public. Enable this option if the interfaces are only reachable by those who have the right authorization.

topology.node.switch.mapping.implorg.apache.hadoop.net.ScriptBasedMapping The default implementation of the DNSToSwitchMapping. It invokes a script specified in topology.script.file.name to resolve node names. If the value for topology.script.file.name is not set, the default value of DEFAULT_RACK is returned for all node names.
topology.script.file.name The script name that should be invoked to resolve DNS names to NetworkTopology names. Example: the script would take host.foo.bar as an argument, and return /rack1 as the output.
topology.script.number.args100 The max number of args that the script configured with topology.script.file.name should be run with. Each arg is an IP address.
hadoop.security.uid.cache.secs14400 NativeIO maintains a cache from UID to UserName. This is the timeout for an entry in that cache.
hadoop.http.authentication.typesimple Defines authentication used for Oozie HTTP endpoint. Supported values are: simple | kerberos | #AUTHENTICATION_HANDLER_CLASSNAME#

hadoop.http.authentication.signature.secret.file${user.home}/hadoop-http-auth-signature-secret The signature secret for signing the authentication tokens. If not set a random secret is generated at startup time. The same secret should be used for JT/NN/DN/TT configurations.
hadoop.http.authentication.cookie.domain The domain to use for the HTTP cookie that stores the authentication token. In order to authentiation to work correctly across all Hadoop nodes web-consoles the domain must be correctly set. IMPORTANT: when using IP addresses, browsers ignore cookies with domain settings. For this setting to work properly all nodes in the cluster must be configured to generate URLs with hostname.domain names on it.
hadoop.http.authentication.simple.anonymous.allowedtrue Indicates if anonymous requests are allowed when using 'simple' authentication.
hadoop.http.authentication.kerberos.principalHTTP/localhost@LOCALHOST Indicates the Kerberos principal to be used for HTTP endpoint. The principal MUST start with 'HTTP/' as per Kerberos HTTP SPNEGO specification.

hadoop.relaxed.worker.version.checkfalse By default datanodes refuse to connect to namenodes if their build revision (svn revision) do not match, and tasktrackers refuse to connect to jobtrackers if their build version (version, revision, user, and source checksum) do not match. This option changes the behavior of hadoop workers to only check for a version match (eg "1.0.2") but ignore the other build fields (revision, user, and source checksum).
