Eli Collins resolved HADOOP-3978.

Resolution: Won't Fix

Out of date
Using regular desktops as hadoop slaves

Key: HADOOP-3978
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3978
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Wish
Environment: 1) Windows XP/Vista
2) MAC OS/X, Linux
Reporter: Niels Basjes
Priority: Minor

In many companies there are a lot of desktop systems (usually XP) running all day without doing really much work.
The basic idea of this wish is similar to what SETI@home did in a screen saver: Turn the idle time of many desktops into a lot of hadoop slaves.
My wish is that an easy to deploy package (MSI package?) is created that turns an XP system into a hadoop slave.
The primary task of such a system is being a user desktop. So the hadoop software on such a slave will have restrictions on how many system resources (memory, cpu, network) it can use.
Having such a feature will make it viable for small companies to start using hadoop for tasks and experiments.
