  • Slaves

  • NameNode

  • HBase Master

  • JobTracker (Hadoop 1 only)

  • ResourceManager (Hadoop 2 only)

  • HistoryServer (Hadoop 2 only) Potential causes
  • A gmond process is down.

  • A gmond process is hanging.

  • The network connection is down between the Nagios and Ganglia servers. Possible remedies
  • Check the gmond related log in /var/log/messages for any errors.
