Ambari 2.6 HDFS Re-balance Exits without balancing

New Contributor

Hi,

we are experiencing an issue where a all most identical deployment using Ambari 2.6, is able to complete a re-balance of 7 data nodes, in 1 AWS center but not in the second.

the command that we run is

hdfs --loglevel DEBUG balancer -Ddfs.datanode.balance.max.concurrent.moves=20 -Ddfs.balancer.moverThreads=10000 -Ddfs.balancer.dispatcherThreads=10000 -threshold 5.0

we also tried to run this from the Ambari UI, using the same threshold

this is what we get in the log

19/01/29 15:43:58 DEBUG hdfs.HAUtil: No HA service delegation token found for logical URI hdfs://mycluster
19/01/29 15:43:58 INFO balancer.Balancer: Using a threshold of 5.0
19/01/29 15:43:58 INFO balancer.Balancer: namenodes  = [hdfs://mycluster]
19/01/29 15:43:58 INFO balancer.Balancer: parameters = Balancer.BalancerParameters [BalancingPolicy.Node, threshold = 5.0, max idle iteration = 5, #excluded nodes = 0, #included nodes = 0, #source nodes = 0, #blockpools = 0, run during upgrade = false]

19/01/29 15:43:58 INFO balancer.Balancer: source nodes = []
Time Stamp               Iteration#  Bytes Already Moved  Bytes Left To Move  Bytes Being Moved


it then starts to collect info from the nodes

to end with 

it will do this 5 times end the final result is

19/01/29 15:44:43 DEBUG balancer.NameNodeConnector: No block has been moved for 5 iterations, maximum notChangedIterations before exit is: 5

for the working cluster we have the same blueprint

does anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

on behave My self @Raymond Honderdors and @Vlad Timofeev thanks in advance
