Heap Dump Directory Path to directory where heap dumps are generated when java.lang.OutOfMemoryError error is thrown. This directory is automatically created if it does not exist. If this directory already exists, role user must have write access to this directory. If this directory is shared among multiple roles, it should have 1777 permissions. The heap dump files are created with 600 permissions and are owned by the role user. The amount of free space in this directory should be greater than the maximum Java Process heap size configured for this role. oom_heap_dump_dir /tmp oom_heap_dump_dir false
Dump Heap When Out of Memory When set, generates heap dump file when java.lang.OutOfMemoryError is thrown. true oom_heap_dump_enabled true

Automatically Restart Process When set, this role's process is automatically (and transparently) restarted in the event of an unexpected failure. This configuration applies in the time after the Start Wait Timeout period. false process_auto_restart true
Enable Metric Collection Cloudera Manager agent monitors each service and each of its role by publishing metrics to the Cloudera Manager Service Monitor. Setting it to false will stop Cloudera Manager agent from publishing any metric for corresponding service/roles. This is usually helpful for services that generate large amount of metrics which Service Monitor is not able to process. true process_should_monitor true
Process Start Retry Attempts Number of times to try starting a role's process when the process exits before the Start Wait Timeout period. After a process is running beyond the Start Wait Timeout, the retry count is reset. Setting this configuration to zero will prevent restart of the process during the Start Wait Timeout period. 3 process_start_retries false
Process Start Wait Timeout The time in seconds to wait for a role's process to start successfully on a host. Processes which exit/crash before this time will be restarted until reaching the limit specified by the Start Retry Attempts count parameter. Setting this configuration to zero will turn off this feature. 20 process_start_secs false

Rules to Extract Events from Log Files This file contains the rules that govern how log messages are turned into events by the custom log4j appender that this role loads. It is in JSON format, and is composed of a list of rules. Every log message is evaluated against each of these rules in turn to decide whether or not to send an event for that message. If a log message matches multiple rules, the first matching rule is used.. Each rule has some or all of the following fields:
  • alert - whether or not events generated from this rule should be promoted to alerts. A value of "true" will cause alerts to be generated. If not specified, the default is "false".
  • rate (mandatory) - the maximum number of log messages matching this rule that can be sent as events every minute. If more than rate matching log messages are received in a single minute, the extra messages are ignored. If rate is less than 0, the number of messages per minute is unlimited.
  • periodminutes - the number of minutes during which the publisher will only publish rate events or fewer. If not specified, the default is one minute
  • threshold - apply this rule only to messages with this log4j severity level or above. An example is "WARN" for warning level messages or higher.
  • content - match only those messages for which contents match this regular expression.
  • exceptiontype - match only those messages that are part of an exception message. The exception type must match this regular expression.
Example:
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 10, "exceptiontype": "java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException"}This rule sends events to Cloudera Manager for every StringIndexOutOfBoundsException, up to a maximum of 10 every minute.
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "exceptiontype": ".*"}, {"alert": true, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "threshold":"ERROR"}In this example, an event generated may not be promoted to alert if an exception is in the ERROR log message, because the first rule with alert = false will match.
version: 0, rules: [ alert: false, rate: 1, periodminutes: 1, threshold: FATAL , alert: false, rate: 1, periodminutes: 2, exceptiontype: .* , alert: false, rate: 1, periodminutes: 1, threshold: WARN ] log_event_whitelist false
Metric Filter Defines a Metric Filter for this role. Cloudera Manager Agents will not send filtered metrics to the Service Monitor. Define the following fields:
  • Health Test Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for health tests.
  • Default Dashboard Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for the default dashboards. For user-defined charts, you must add the metrics you require for the chart using the Custom Metrics parameter.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics - Select Include to specify metrics that should be collected. Select Exclude to specify metrics that should not be collected. Enter the metric names to be included or excluded using the Metric Name parameter.
  • Metric Name - The name of a metric that will be included or excluded during metric collection.
If you do not select Health Test Metric Set or Default Dashboard Metric Set, or specify metrics by name, metric filtering will be turned off (this is the default behavior).For example, the following configuration enables the collection of metrics required for Health Tests and the jvm_heap_used_mb metric:
  • Include only Health Test Metric Set: Selected.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics: Set to Include.
  • Metric Name: jvm_heap_used_mb
You can also view the JSON representation for this parameter by clicking View as JSON. In this example, the JSON looks like this:{ "includeHealthTestMetricSet": true, "filterType": "whitelist", "metrics": ["jvm_heap_used_mb"] }
monitoring_metric_filter false
Process Swap Memory Thresholds The health test thresholds on the swap memory usage of the process. This takes precedence over the host level threshold. Warning: 200 B, Critical: Never process_swap_memory_thresholds false
Role Triggers The configured triggers for this role. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific role.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger configured for a DataNode fires if the DataNode has more than 1500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleName=$ROLENAME and last(fd_open) > 1500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 0, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.
[] role_triggers true
Unexpected Exits Thresholds The health test thresholds for unexpected exits encountered within a recent period specified by the unexpected_exits_window configuration for the role. Warning: Never, Critical: Any unexpected_exits_thresholds false
Unexpected Exits Monitoring Period The period to review when computing unexpected exits. 5 minute(s) unexpected_exits_window false

Performance

Display Name Description Related Name Default Value API Name Required
I/O Sort Factor The number of streams to merge at the same time while sorting files. That is, the number of sort heads to use during the merge sort on the reducer side. This determines the number of open file handles. Merging more files in parallel reduces merge sort iterations and improves run time by eliminating disk I/O. Note that merging more files in parallel uses more memory. If 'io.sort.factor' is set too high or the maximum JVM heap is set too low, excessive garbage collection will occur. The Hadoop default is 10, but Cloudera recommends a higher value. Will be part of generated client configuration. io.sort.factor 64 io_sort_factor false
I/O Sort Memory Buffer (MiB) The total amount of memory buffer, in megabytes, to use while sorting files. Note that this memory comes out of the user JVM heap size (meaning total user JVM heap - this amount of memory = total user usable heap space. Note that Cloudera's default differs from Hadoop's default; Cloudera uses a bigger buffer by default because modern machines often have more RAM. The smallest value across all TaskTrackers will be part of generated client configuration. io.sort.mb 256 MiB io_sort_mb false
I/O Sort Record Percent The percentage of 'io.sort.mb' dedicated to tracking record boundaries. If this value is represented as 'r', and 'io.sort.mb' is represented as 'x', then the maximum number of records collected before the collection thread must block is equal to (r * x) / 4. The syntax is in decimal units; the default is 5% and is formatted 0.05. Will be part of generated client configuration. io.sort.record.percent 0.05 io_sort_record_percent false
I/O Sort Spill Percent The soft limit in either the buffer or record collection buffers. When this limit is reached, a thread will begin to spill the contents to disk in the background. Note that this does not imply any chunking of data to the spill. A value less than 0.5 is not recommended. The syntax is in decimal units; the default is 80% and is formatted 0.8. Will be part of generated client configuration. io.sort.spill.percent 0.8 io_sort_spill_percent false
MapReduce Child Java Opts Base Java opts for the TaskTracker child processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID. Any other occurrences of '@' will go unchanged. For example, to enable verbose gc logging to a file named for the taskid in /tmp pass a value of: "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:/tmp/@taskid@.gc". The configuration variable 'mapred.child.ulimit' can be used to control the maximum virtual memory of the child processes. Note that unlike Hadoop, Cloudera Manager separates the child options into this setting and a separate setting just for the maximum heap size. Will be part of generated client configuration. mapred.child.java.opts -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true mapred_child_java_opts_base false
Map Task Java Opts Base Java opts for the TaskTracker child map processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID. Any other occurrences of '@' will go unchanged. For example, to enable verbose gc logging to a file named for the taskid in /tmp pass a value of: "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:/tmp/@taskid@.gc". The configuration variable 'Map Task Maximum Virtual Memory' can be used to control the maximum virtual memory of the map processes. This takes precedence over the generic 'mapred.child.java.opts'. Will be part of generated client configuration. mapred.map.child.java.opts mapred_map_task_java_opts false
Default Number of Parallel Transfers During Shuffle The default number of parallel transfers run by reduce during the copy (shuffle) phase. This number is calculated by the following formula: min(number_of_nodes, n * min(number_of_cores_per_node, number_of_spindles_per_node)) where the n represents how many streams you want to run per core/spindle. A value of 10 for n is appropriate in most cases. Will be part of generated client configuration. mapred.reduce.parallel.copies 10 mapred_reduce_parallel_copies false
Reduce Task Java Opts Base Java opts for the TaskTracker child reduce processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID.

Capacity Scheduler Configuration Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) Enter an XML string that represents the Capacity Scheduler configuration. <!-- This is the configuration file for the resource manager in Hadoop. --><!-- You can configure various scheduling parameters related to queues. --><!-- The properties for a queue follow a naming convention, such as, --><!-- mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.<queue-name>.property-name. --><configuration> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.default.capacity</name> <value>100</value> <description>Percentage of the number of slots in the cluster that are to be available for jobs in this queue. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.default.maximum-capacity</name> <value>-1</value> <description> maximum-capacity defines a limit beyond which a queue cannot use the capacity of the cluster. This provides a means to limit how much excess capacity a queue can use. By default, there is no limit. The maximum-capacity of a queue can only be greater than or equal to its minimum capacity. Default value of -1 implies a queue can use complete capacity of the cluster. This property could be to curtail certain jobs which are long running in nature from occupying more than a certain percentage of the cluster, which in the absence of pre-emption, could lead to capacity guarantees of other queues being affected. One important thing to note is that maximum-capacity is a percentage , so based on the cluster's capacity the max capacity would change. So if large no of nodes or racks get added to the cluster , max Capacity in absolute terms would increase accordingly. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.default.supports-priority</name> <value>false</value> <description>If true, priorities of jobs will be taken into account in scheduling decisions. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.default.minimum-user-limit-percent</name> <value>100</value> <description> Each queue enforces a limit on the percentage of resources allocated to a user at any given time, if there is competition for them. This user limit can vary between a minimum and maximum value. The former depends on the number of users who have submitted jobs, and the latter is set to this property value. For example, suppose the value of this property is 25. If two users have submitted jobs to a queue, no single user can use more than 50% of the queue resources. If a third user submits a job, no single user can use more than 33% of the queue resources. With 4 or more users, no user can use more than 25% of the queue's resources. A value of 100 implies no user limits are imposed. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.queue.default.maximum-initialized-jobs-per-user</name> <value>2</value> <description>The maximum number of jobs to be pre-initialized for a user of the job queue. </description> </property> <!-- The default configuration settings for the capacity task scheduler --> <!-- The default values would be applied to all the queues which don't have --> <!-- the appropriate property for the particular queue --> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.default-supports-priority</name> <value>false</value> <description>If true, priorities of jobs will be taken into account in scheduling decisions by default in a job queue. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.default-minimum-user-limit-percent</name> <value>100</value> <description>The percentage of the resources limited to a particular user for the job queue at any given point of time by default. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.default-maximum-initialized-jobs-per-user</name> <value>2</value> <description>The maximum number of jobs to be pre-initialized for a user of the job queue. </description> </property> <!-- Capacity scheduler Job Initialization configuration parameters --> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.init-poll-interval</name> <value>5000</value> <description>The amount of time in miliseconds which is used to poll the job queues for jobs to initialize. </description> </property> <property> <name>mapred.capacity-scheduler.init-worker-threads</name> <value>5</value> <description>Number of worker threads which would be used by Initialization poller to initialize jobs in a set of queue.

Fair Scheduler Allocation Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) Enter an XML string that represents the Fair Scheduler allocation pools. <allocations> </allocations> mapred_fairscheduler_allocation false
Fair Scheduler Allow Undeclared Pools Enable job submission to pools not declared in the allocation file. mapred.fairscheduler.allow.undeclared.pools true mapred_fairscheduler_allow_undeclared_pools false
Fair Scheduler Assign Multiple Tasks Allows the Fair Scheduler to assign both a map task and a reduce task on each Cloudera Agent heartbeat, which improves cluster throughput when there are many small tasks to run. mapred.fairscheduler.assignmultiple true mapred_fairscheduler_assignmultiple false
Fair Scheduler Pool Name Property Specify the 'jobconf' property that determines the pool that a job belongs in. The default is 'user.name' (one pool for each user). If you want to use MapReduce's "queue" system to enable authorization for the Fair Scheduler, specify 'mapred.job.queue.name'. This requires adding the Fair Scheduler's pool names to 'mapred.queue.names' and users to submit jobs using the 'mapred.job.queue.name' property instead of the 'mapred.fairscheduler.pool' property. Note that 'mapred.fairscheduler.poolnameproperty' is used only for jobs in which 'mapred.fairscheduler.pool' is not explicitly set. mapred.fairscheduler.poolnameproperty user.name mapred_fairscheduler_poolnameproperty false
Fair Scheduler Preemption Enables Fair Scheduler preemption. If a pool's minimum share is not met for some period of time, the Fair Scheduler optionally supports preemption of jobs in other pools. The pool will be allowed to kill tasks from other pools to make room to run. Preemption can be used to guarantee that production jobs are not starved while also allowing the Hadoop cluster to be used for experimental and research jobs. In addition, a pool can also be allowed to preempt tasks if it is below half of its fair share for a configurable timeout (generally set larger than the minimum share preemption timeout). When choosing tasks to kill, the Fair Scheduler picks the most-recently launched tasks from over-allocated jobs, to minimize wasted computation. Preemption does not cause the preempted jobs to fail because Hadoop jobs tolerate losing tasks; it only makes them take longer to finish. mapred.fairscheduler.preemption false mapred_fairscheduler_preemption false
Fair Scheduler Weight Adjuster An extension point that lets you specify a class to adjust the weights of running jobs. This class should implement the WeightAdjuster interface. There is currently one example implementation - NewJobWeightBooster, which increases the weight of jobs for their first 5 minutes to let short jobs finish faster. To use it, set the weightadjuster property to the full classname, org.apache.hadoop.mapred.NewJobWeightBooster. NewJobWeightBooster itself provides two parameters for setting the duration and boost factor. mapred.newjobweightbooster.factor: Factor by which new jobs weight should be boosted. Default is 3. mapred.newjobweightbooster.duration: Boost duration in milliseconds. Default is 300000 for 5 minutes. mapred.fairscheduler.weight.adjuster mapred_fairscheduler_weight_adjuster false
Persist JobTracker Job Status If enabled, job status information is persisted. mapred.job.tracker.persist.jobstatus.active false mapred_job_tracker_persist_jobstatus_active false

Time Limit of JobTracker Job Status Persistence The number of hours job status information is persisted in HDFS. The job status information will be available after it drops out of the memory queue and between JobTracker restarts. If zero is specified for this property, the job status information is not persisted. mapred.job.tracker.persist.jobstatus.hours 0 mapred_job_tracker_persist_jobstatus_hours false
Maximum Completed User Jobs The maximum number of completed jobs per user to retain before delegating them to the job history. mapred.jobtracker.completeuserjobs.maximum 5 mapred_jobtracker_completeuserjobs_maximum false
Enable Job Recovery Upon Restart Enables job recovery upon restart. If the property is set to true, then if and when the JobTracker stops while a job is running, it will resubmit the job on restart. mapred.jobtracker.restart.recover false mapred_jobtracker_restart_recover false
JobTracker Retire Job Interval (milliseconds) Number of milliseconds job history objects are kept. mapred.jobtracker.retirejob.interval 86400000 mapred_jobtracker_retirejob_interval false
MapReduce Queue Names Comma separated list of queues configured for the JobTracker in this service instance. Jobs are added to queues. Schedulers can configure different scheduling properties for the queues specified in this list. You can configure queue properties that are common to all schedulers, by using the naming convention 'mapred.queue.$QUEUE-NAME.$PROPERTY-NAME' in this property (for example, 'mapred.queue.default.submit-job-acl'). The number of queues configured in this property depends on the type of scheduler specified in 'mapred.jobtracker.taskScheduler'. The default scheduler JobQueueTaskScheduler supports a single queue only. Before adding more queues to this property, make sure that the scheduler in 'mapred.jobtracker.taskScheduler' supports multiple queues. This property can also be populated with the Fair Scheduler's pool names to enable authorization of the Fair Scheduler. This requires setting 'mapred.fairscheduler.poolnameproperty' to 'mapred.job.queue.name' and users to submit jobs to the right queue by setting the 'mapred.job.queue.name' property in their jobs. mapred.queue.names default mapred_queue_names_list false

Rules to Extract Events from Log Files This file contains the rules that govern how log messages are turned into events by the custom log4j appender that this role loads. It is in JSON format, and is composed of a list of rules. Every log message is evaluated against each of these rules in turn to decide whether or not to send an event for that message. If a log message matches multiple rules, the first matching rule is used.. Each rule has some or all of the following fields:
  • alert - whether or not events generated from this rule should be promoted to alerts. A value of "true" will cause alerts to be generated. If not specified, the default is "false".
  • rate (mandatory) - the maximum number of log messages matching this rule that can be sent as events every minute. If more than rate matching log messages are received in a single minute, the extra messages are ignored. If rate is less than 0, the number of messages per minute is unlimited.
  • periodminutes - the number of minutes during which the publisher will only publish rate events or fewer. If not specified, the default is one minute
  • threshold - apply this rule only to messages with this log4j severity level or above. An example is "WARN" for warning level messages or higher.
  • content - match only those messages for which contents match this regular expression.
  • exceptiontype - match only those messages that are part of an exception message. The exception type must match this regular expression.
Example:
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 10, "exceptiontype": "java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException"}This rule sends events to Cloudera Manager for every StringIndexOutOfBoundsException, up to a maximum of 10 every minute.
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "exceptiontype": ".*"}, {"alert": true, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "threshold":"ERROR"}In this example, an event generated may not be promoted to alert if an exception is in the ERROR log message, because the first rule with alert = false will match.

Metric Filter Defines a Metric Filter for this role. Cloudera Manager Agents will not send filtered metrics to the Service Monitor. Define the following fields:
  • Health Test Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for health tests.
  • Default Dashboard Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for the default dashboards. For user-defined charts, you must add the metrics you require for the chart using the Custom Metrics parameter.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics - Select Include to specify metrics that should be collected. Select Exclude to specify metrics that should not be collected. Enter the metric names to be included or excluded using the Metric Name parameter.
  • Metric Name - The name of a metric that will be included or excluded during metric collection.
If you do not select Health Test Metric Set or Default Dashboard Metric Set, or specify metrics by name, metric filtering will be turned off (this is the default behavior).For example, the following configuration enables the collection of metrics required for Health Tests and the jvm_heap_used_mb metric:
  • Include only Health Test Metric Set: Selected.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics: Set to Include.
  • Metric Name: jvm_heap_used_mb
You can also view the JSON representation for this parameter by clicking View as JSON. In this example, the JSON looks like this:{ "includeHealthTestMetricSet": true, "filterType": "whitelist", "metrics": ["jvm_heap_used_mb"] }

Process Swap Memory Thresholds The health test thresholds on the swap memory usage of the process. This takes precedence over the host level threshold. Warning: 200 B, Critical: Never process_swap_memory_thresholds false
Role Triggers The configured triggers for this role. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific role.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger configured for a DataNode fires if the DataNode has more than 1500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleName=$ROLENAME and last(fd_open) > 1500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 0, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.

Service Triggers The configured triggers for this service. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific service.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger fires if there are more than 10 DataNodes with more than 500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleType = DataNode and last(fd_open) > 500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 10, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.

  • alert - whether or not events generated from this rule should be promoted to alerts. A value of "true" will cause alerts to be generated. If not specified, the default is "false".
  • rate (mandatory) - the maximum number of log messages matching this rule that can be sent as events every minute. If more than rate matching log messages are received in a single minute, the extra messages are ignored. If rate is less than 0, the number of messages per minute is unlimited.
  • periodminutes - the number of minutes during which the publisher will only publish rate events or fewer. If not specified, the default is one minute
  • threshold - apply this rule only to messages with this log4j severity level or above. An example is "WARN" for warning level messages or higher.
  • content - match only those messages for which contents match this regular expression.
  • exceptiontype - match only those messages that are part of an exception message. The exception type must match this regular expression.
Example:
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 10, "exceptiontype": "java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException"}This rule sends events to Cloudera Manager for every StringIndexOutOfBoundsException, up to a maximum of 10 every minute.
  • {"alert": false, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "exceptiontype": ".*"}, {"alert": true, "rate": 1, "periodminutes": 1, "threshold":"ERROR"}In this example, an event generated may not be promoted to alert if an exception is in the ERROR log message, because the first rule with alert = false will match.

Metric Filter Defines a Metric Filter for this role. Cloudera Manager Agents will not send filtered metrics to the Service Monitor. Define the following fields:
  • Health Test Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for health tests.
  • Default Dashboard Metric Set - Select this parameter to collect only metrics required for the default dashboards. For user-defined charts, you must add the metrics you require for the chart using the Custom Metrics parameter.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics - Select Include to specify metrics that should be collected. Select Exclude to specify metrics that should not be collected. Enter the metric names to be included or excluded using the Metric Name parameter.
  • Metric Name - The name of a metric that will be included or excluded during metric collection.
If you do not select Health Test Metric Set or Default Dashboard Metric Set, or specify metrics by name, metric filtering will be turned off (this is the default behavior).For example, the following configuration enables the collection of metrics required for Health Tests and the jvm_heap_used_mb metric:
  • Include only Health Test Metric Set: Selected.
  • Include/Exclude Custom Metrics: Set to Include.
  • Metric Name: jvm_heap_used_mb
You can also view the JSON representation for this parameter by clicking View as JSON. In this example, the JSON looks like this:{ "includeHealthTestMetricSet": true, "filterType": "whitelist", "metrics": ["jvm_heap_used_mb"] }

Process Swap Memory Thresholds The health test thresholds on the swap memory usage of the process. This takes precedence over the host level threshold. Warning: 200 B, Critical: Never process_swap_memory_thresholds false
Role Triggers The configured triggers for this role. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific role.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger configured for a DataNode fires if the DataNode has more than 1500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleName=$ROLENAME and last(fd_open) > 1500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 0, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.

Performance

Display Name Description Related Name Default Value API Name Required
I/O Sort Factor (Client Override) The number of streams to merge at once while sorting files. That is, the number of sort heads to use during the merge sort on the reducer side. This determines the number of open file handles. Merging more files in parallel reduces merge sort iterations and improves run time by eliminating disk I/O. Note that merging more files in parallel uses more memory. If 'io.sort.factor' is set too high or the maximum JVM heap is set too low, excessive garbage collection will occur. The Hadoop default is 10, but Cloudera recommends a higher value. Will override value in client configuration. io.sort.factor override_io_sort_factor false
I/O Sort Memory Buffer (MiB) (Client Override) The total amount of memory buffer, in megabytes, to use while sorting files. Note that this memory comes out of the user JVM heap size (meaning total user JVM heap - this amount of memory = total user usable heap space. Note that Cloudera's default differs from Hadoop's default; Cloudera uses a bigger buffer by default because modern machines often have more RAM. Will override value in client configuration. io.sort.mb override_io_sort_mb false
I/O Sort Record Percent (Client Override) The percentage of 'io.sort.mb' dedicated to tracking record boundaries. If this value is represented as 'r', and 'io.sort.mb' is represented as 'x', then the maximum number of records collected before the collection thread must block is equal to (r * x) / 4. The syntax is in decimal units; the default is 5% and is formatted 0.05. Will override value in client configuration. io.sort.record.percent override_io_sort_record_percent false
I/O Sort Spill Percent (Client Override) The soft limit in either the buffer or record collection buffers. When this limit is reached, a thread will begin to spill the contents to disk in the background. Note that this does not imply any chunking of data to the spill. A value less than 0.5 is not recommended. The syntax is in decimal units; the default is 80% and is formatted 0.8. Will override value in client configuration. io.sort.spill.percent override_io_sort_spill_percent false
MapReduce Child Java Opts Base (Client Override) Java opts for the TaskTracker child processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID. Any other occurrences of '@' will go unchanged. For example, to enable verbose gc logging to a file named for the taskid in /tmp pass a value of: "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:/tmp/@taskid@.gc". The configuration variable 'mapred.child.ulimit' can be used to control the maximum virtual memory of the child processes. Note that unlike Hadoop, Cloudera Manager separates the child options into this setting and a separate setting just for the maximum heap size. Will override value in client configuration. mapred.child.java.opts override_mapred_child_java_opts_base false
Map Task Java Opts Base (Client Override) Java opts for the TaskTracker child map processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID. Any other occurrences of '@' will go unchanged. For example, to enable verbose gc logging to a file named for the taskid in /tmp pass a value of: "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:/tmp/@taskid@.gc". The configuration variable 'Map Task Maximum Virtual Memory' can be used to control the maximum virtual memory of the map processes. This takes precedence over the generic 'mapred.child.java.opts'. mapred.map.child.java.opts override_mapred_map_task_java_opts false
Default Number of Parallel Transfers During Shuffle (Client Override) The default number of parallel transfers run by reduce during the copy (shuffle) phase. This number is calculated by the following formula: min(number_of_nodes, n * min(number_of_cores_per_node, number_of_spindles_per_node)) where the n represents how many streams you want to run per core/spindle. A value of 10 for n is appropriate in most cases. Will override value in client configuration. mapred.reduce.parallel.copies override_mapred_reduce_parallel_copies false
Reduce Task Java Opts Base (Client Override) Java opts for the TaskTracker child map processes. The following symbol, if present, will be interpolated: @taskid@ is replaced by current TaskID. Any other occurrences of '@' will go unchanged. For example, to enable verbose gc logging to a file named for the taskid in /tmp pass a value of: "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:/tmp/@taskid@.gc". The configuration variable 'Reduce Task Maximum Virtual Memory' can be used to control the maximum virtual memory of the reduce processes. This takes precedence over the generic 'mapred.child.java.opts'. mapred.reduce.child.java.opts override_mapred_reduce_task_java_opts false
Maximum Process File Descriptors If configured, overrides the process soft and hard rlimits (also called ulimits) for file descriptors to the configured value. rlimit_fds false
