HBase sink prefer hbase-site.xml over Zookeeper config Disables import of ZooKeeper configuration from the HBase classpath. This prevents zoo.cfg from overriding hbase-site.xml for Zookeeper quorum information. This option is only supported on CDH 4.4 or later deployments. true agent_disable_zoo_cfg true
Agent Environment Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) For advanced use only, key-value pairs (one on each line) to be inserted into a role's environment. Applies to configurations of this role except client configuration. AGENT_role_env_safety_valve false
Java Configuration Options for Flume Agent These arguments will be passed as part of the Java command line. Commonly, garbage collection flags or extra debugging flags would be passed here. Note that Flume agent only uses options that start with -D and -X (including -XX). flume_agent_java_opts false
Agent Logging Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) For advanced use only, a string to be inserted into log4j.properties for this role only. log4j_safety_valve false
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
Kill When Out of Memory When set, a SIGKILL signal is sent to the role process when java.lang.OutOfMemoryError is thrown. true oom_sigkill_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. true 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: 0, threshold: WARN, content: .* is deprecated. Instead, use .* , alert: false, rate: 0, threshold: WARN, content: .* is deprecated. Use .* instead , 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

Enable Configuration Change Alerts When set, Cloudera Manager will send alerts when this entity's configuration changes. false enable_config_alerts false
Healthy Agent Monitoring Thresholds The health test thresholds of the overall Agent health. The check returns "Concerning" health if the percentage of "Healthy" Agents falls below the warning threshold. The check is unhealthy if the total percentage of "Healthy" and "Concerning" Agents falls below the critical threshold. Warning: 95.0 %, Critical: Never flume_agents_healthy_thresholds false

Log Event Retry Frequency The frequency in which the log4j event publication appender will retry sending undelivered log events to the Event server, in seconds 30 log_event_retry_frequency false
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.
