@hadoopNoob,

 

In order to address this issue, you will need to free up space in /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process.

 

To do so, we need to know much space each process directorty is taking and also how old they are.

You can try listing the directories in order of size with a command like:

 

du -h --max-depth=1 /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process | sort -h

 

It is OK to delete directories in /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process provided that process directory is not used for a running process.

 

/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process is where the configuration for any role you are starting resides, so if you run out of space, you will not be able to start processes on that host.

Hi @hadoopNoob,

 

Your agent directory is in a disck with few memory, you need to move the directory to another unit with more space memory.

 

You need to change the path in the configuration file. Usually located in /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini

 

Then, restart the agent, service cloudera-scm-agent restart.

 

Regards,

Manu.
