DataNode daemon restarted frequently

DataNode daemon restarted frequently

Explorer

Hi experts:

 

There is a node on which the DataNode process is restarted frequently by the supervisord. Other nodes in the cluster with same hardware and configurations do not see such issues. We are on the version CDH-5.15.2-1. Could you please advise where to look for the reason? Thank you.

 

In the log file 'hadoop-cmf-hdfs-DATANODE-compute-1-14.local.log.out', for today we see:

bash-4.1# grep -B 2 "STARTUP_MSG: Starting DataNode" hadoop-cmf-hdfs-DATANODE-compute-1-14.local.log.out

2020-09-03 02:49:08,033 INFO org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataNode: STARTUP_MSG:

These correspond to what is the supervisord log /var/log/cloudera-scm-agent/supervisord.log:

@vincentD Please look at DATANODE logs to check for any FATAL/ERRORs before the shutdown. That could shed some light on the root cause of DN failure.

Hello @vincentD Please review the stdout and stderr of the DN which going down frequently.

You can navigate to CM > HDFS > Instance > Select the DN which went down > Processes > click on stdout/stderr atthe bottom of the page.  

 

I am asking to verify stdout/stderr suspecting an OOM error (due to java heap running out of memory) leading to the DN exit/shutdown abruptly.  

 

If the DN exit is due to OOM Error, please increase the DN heap size to adequate value to get rid off teh issue further. DN heap sizing rule of thumb says: 1 GB heap memory for 1Million blocks. You can verify your block counts on each DN by navigating to CM > HDFS > NN Web UI > Active NN > DataNode and you can see the DN stats on that page showing block counts and disk usage etc..
