Re: kudu service are getting down frequently

Hi folks,

 

I spent some time looking into this and agree that running ntpd with the '-x' option will make Kudu crash (likely after 8 hours and 53 minutes based on my math). I wrote some details here:

Is that mean i need to broke all my production servers and give it special treatment by enabling stepping to get Kudu working for me?

 

Seems we are so far to go with it to our production, i'm using it in our test enviroment.

Re: kudu service are getting down frequently

You could use 'tinker step 500' and have the effect that stepping would
only be enabled for time differences more than 500ms. I wouldn't consider
this breaking your production environment, but I guess you may have some
reason that '-x' is important to you.

We'll work on addressing this in a future release so that no system-wide
changes are necessary.
