Changing YARN NodeManager setting doesn't flag as stale configuration in CM

Noticed this in CM 5.13

 

When changing the value Node Manager config item Dish Health Checker Max Disk Utilization Percent (yarn.nodemanager.disk-health-checker.max-disk-utilization-per-disk-percentage) - in my case increasing it from 90 to 95, CM doesn't flag the already running instances as being out of date/stale and flagged for restart

 

This is confirmed by looking in the running processes yarn-site.xml file

 

Also I think the "Dish Health" might mean "Disk"

 

No further support required here, just pointing it out

 

Regards

Re: Changing YARN NodeManager setting doesn't flag as stale configuration in CM

@mcalnd,

 

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I just tested on CM 5.13.1 and 5.15.0.

I changed the percentage from 90 to 91.

 

After about 10 seconds, both YARN services showed the configuration was stale.  The diff showed the change I made

 

I wonder if there may have been a problem with the staleness detection in CM in your case.

If this happens again, you might try restarting Cloudera Manager and see if the stale config is detected and then review the CM log to see if there was anything going wrong with "staleness" detection.

 

Thanks again!
