Announcing: Cloudera Enterprise 5.4.7

Master Collaborator

Dear CDH, Cloudera Manager, Impala, and Cloudera Navigator users,

We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Enterprise 5.4.7 (CDH 5.4.7, Cloudera Manager 5.4.7, and Cloudera Navigator 2.3.7).  

Cloudera Enterprise 5.4.7

This release fixes key bugs and includes the following.

  • CDH fixes for the following issues:

    • The Spooling directory source dies when encountering zero-byte files.

    • The VolumeScanner thread exits with an exception if there is no block pool to be scanned but there are suspicious blocks.

    • ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException in CellComparator#getMinimumMidpointArray.

    • Lateral view on top of a view throws a RuntimeException.

    • java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException when union all with if function.

For a full list of upstream JIRAs fixed in CDH 5.4.7, see the issues fixed section of the Release Notes.


  • Cloudera Manager fixes for the following issues:

    • The ZooKeeper jute.maxbuffer property is emitted into zoo.cfg instead of in the JVM arguments.

    • Using the "create a user" API call, a user who normally could not create users is able to create a read-only user account.

    • Attempting to set the listening_hostname property in the Agent's config.ini file (which is not normally necessary) changes the Agent's host ID to use this hostname, instead of the normal value.

    • On Kerberized clusters, Cloudera Manager is monitoring the wrong process as the DataNode.

For full list of issues fixed in Cloudera Manager 5.4.7, see the issues fixed section of the Release Notes.

  • There are no updates in Cloudera Navigator 2.3.7.

We look forward to you trying it out, using the information below:
