Event Server fails to start

Event Server fails to start

Explorer

Hi,

 

On both of our CDM5.4 & 5.3 installation the Event Server fails to start. Looking at the log I see the following:

 

2015-08-20 06:06:08,729 WARN com.cloudera.cmf.event.publish.EventStorePublisherWithRetry: Failed to publish event: SimpleEvent{attributes={ROLE_TYPE=[EVENTSERVER], CATEGORY=[LOG_MESSAGE], ROLE=[mgmt-EVENTSERVER-e1999db7de4fe4b7c2c57898304d3380], SEVERITY=[IMPORTANT], SERVICE=[mgmt], HOST_IDS=[96352548-2978-4364-9db5-8dc03ea649d9], SERVICE_TYPE=[MGMT], LOG_LEVEL=[WARN], HOSTS=[sdlc6407.labs.teradata.com], EVENTCODE=[EV_LOG_EVENT]}, content=Category SERVICE is not ROLE for input role type KMS-KMS., timestamp=1440075968044}

 

Is there something I've not done correctly in the installation of these two managers? I've looked on the forum and see no other topic that's similiar.

 

Any advice welcome

Steve

Hi,

 

You can assign it more memory through the "Configuration" page.

 

Click on Cloudera Management Service -> Configuration -> Select "Event Server" on the filters on the left.

Add "heap"  to the search box at the top of the filters. You should see "Java Heap Size of Event Server in bytes" as a configuration option.

 

Try increasing it to 512MB or 1GB.

 

It would be nice to get an idea of the whole log, to see what its doing that led it to run out of memory.

I'm also seeing this on the stdout. Looks like its out of memory. Any idea how to assign it more memory?

Hi,

 

Yes I done this yesterday after not finding any suggestion on the web. This has fixed the issue but I've no idea why what I assume to be the default configuration should cause the Event Server to fail.

 

Cheers

I have followed adding 1g on "Java Heap Size of Event Server in bytes", it does not work either, any more advice ?

thanks

It may be the cause of the failure is not an OutOfMemoryError excpetions.  I believe you solved the issue in another post by opening up permissions in /var/ as the event server files could not be created.  If not, let us know.
