Viewing replication policies

The Replications Policies page displays a row of information about each replication policy. Each row also displays recent messages regarding the last time the replication job ran.

Figure 1. Replication Policies

Only one job corresponding to a replication policy can occur at a time; if another job associated with that same replication policy starts before the previous one has finished, the second one is canceled.

You can limit the replication jobs that are displayed by selecting filters on the left. If you do not see an expected policy, adjust or clear the filters. Use the search box to search the list of policies for path, database, or table names.

The Replication Policies columns are described in the following table:
Table 1. Replication Policies Table
Column Description
ID An internally generated ID number that identifies the policy. Provides a convenient way to identify a policy.

Click the ID column label to sort the replication policies table by ID.

Name The unique name you specify when you create a policy.

Click the Name column label to sort the replication policies table by name.

Type The type of replication policy, HDFS or Hive.
Source The source cluster for the replication.
Destination The destination cluster for the replication.
Throughput Average throughput per mapper/file of all the files written. Note that throughput does not include the following information: the combined throughput of all mappers and the time taken to perform a checksum on a file after the file is written.
Progress The progress of the replication.
Completed The time when the replication job completed.

Click the Completed column label to sort the replication policies table by time.

Next Run The date and time when the next replication is scheduled, based on the schedule parameters specified for the policy. Hover over the date to view additional details about the scheduled replication.

Click the Next Run column label to sort the replication policies table by the next run date.

Actions The following items are available from the Action button:
  • Show History. Opens the Replication History page for a replication.
  • Edit Configuration. Opens the Edit HDFS Replication Policy page.
  • Dry Run. Simulates a run of the replication task but does not actually copy any files or tables. After a Dry Run, you can select Show History, which opens the Replication History page where you can view any error messages and the number and size of files or tables that would be copied in an actual replication.
  • Run Now - Runs the replication task immediately.
  • Collect Diagnostic Data. Opens the Send Diagnostic Data screen, which allows you to collect replication-specific diagnostic data for the last 10 runs of the policy.

    In the Send Diagnostic Data screen, select Send Diagnostic Data to Cloudera to automatically send the bundle to Cloudera Support. You can also enter a ticket number and comments when sending the bundle. After you click Collect and Send Diagnostic Data, the Replication Manager generates the bundle and opens the Replications Diagnostics Command screen. When the command finishes, click Download Result Data to download a zip file containing the bundle.

  • Disable | Enable. Disables or enables the replication policy. No further replications are scheduled for disabled replication policies.
  • Delete. Deletes the policy. Deleting a replication policy does not delete copied files or tables.
