About Meltdown and Spectre with CDH5.8.3

New Contributor

Hi Cloudera team,

 

I have a CDH 5.8.3 cluster on RedHat 6.7 (5 nodes with HA)

 

I like to know with RedHat Security Fix Patch : kernel-2.6.32-696.18.7.el6.x86_64.rpm about meltdown and spectre

 

Does it affect CDH performance?

 

with current meltdown and spectre is there any CDH software patches required apart from OS Patche ?

 

thanks for your help.

Hi Cloudera team,

I have a similar question.

I have a CDH 5.8.3 cluster on Centos 7.3 (40 nodes in HA)

I like to know with CentOS Security Fix Patch : CentOS 7.4 kernel.x86_64 0:3.10.0-693.11.6.el7 about meltdown and spectre

Does it affect CDH performance?

With current meltdown and spectre is there any CDH software patches required apart from OS Patch ?

Thanks for your help.
