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

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.

Enable Audit Collection Enable collection of audit events from the service's roles. navigator.audit.enabled true navigator_audit_enabled false
Audit Event Filter Event filters are defined in a JSON object like the following: { "defaultAction" : ("accept", "discard"), "rules" : [ { "action" : ("accept", "discard"), "fields" : [ { "name" : "fieldName", "match" : "regex" } ] } ] } A filter has a default action and a list of rules, in order of precedence. Each rule defines an action, and a list of fields to match against the audit event. A rule is "accepted" if all the listed field entries match the audit event. At that point, the action declared by the rule is taken. If no rules match the event, the default action is taken. Actions default to "accept" if not defined in the JSON object. The following is the list of fields that can be filtered for Sentry events:
  • operation: the Sentry operation being performed.
  • username: the user performing the action.
  • ipAddress: the IP from where the request originated.
  • allowed: whether the operation was allowed or denied.
navigator.event.filter navigator_audit_event_filter false
Audit Queue Policy Action to take when the audit event queue is full. Drop the event or shutdown the affected process. navigator.batch.queue_policy DROP navigator_audit_queue_policy false
Audit Event Tracker Configures the rules for event tracking and coalescing. This feature is used to define equivalency between different audit events. When events match, according to a set of configurable parameters, only one entry in the audit list is generated for all the matching events. Tracking works by keeping a reference to events when they first appear, and comparing other incoming events against the "tracked" events according to the rules defined here. Event trackers are defined in a JSON object like the following: { "timeToLive" : [integer], "fields" : [ { "type" : [string], "name" : [string] } ] } Where:
  • timeToLive: maximum amount of time an event will be tracked, in milliseconds. Must be provided. This defines how long, since it's first seen, an event will be tracked. A value of 0 disables tracking.
  • fields: list of fields to compare when matching events against tracked events.
Each field has an evaluator type associated with it. The evaluator defines how the field data is to be compared. The following evaluators are available:
  • value: uses the field value for comparison.
  • userName: treats the field value as a userName, and ignores any host-specific data. This is useful for environment using Kerberos, so that only the principal name and realm are compared.
The following is the list of fields that can be used to compare Sentry events:
  • operation: the Sentry operation being performed.
  • username: the user performing the action.
  • ipAddress: the IP from where the request originated.
  • allowed: whether the operation was allowed or denied.
