Failed unmarshalling 'CONNECTION_RESPONSE' protocol message from localhost/127.0.0.1:11443 due to: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

Failed unmarshalling 'CONNECTION_RESPONSE' protocol message from localhost/127.0.0.1:11443 due to: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

Hi, for some reason, my one-node cluster always display the following error message in the log file for a dozen times (takes a while ) before everything returns to normal to allow connections via GUI. Would appreciate any help.

I have a multi-node cluster and I see this message as well. When this happens the node experiencing this becomes disconnected from the cluster. At that point, you can not make any changes to the flows.

 

Upon some searches I came across these properties.

 

nifi.cluster.node.connection.timeout=10 sec
nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=10 sec

 

I believe 10 sec is pretty generous. Is there something else that needs to be tweaked.

Hello @Love-Nifi  and @vchhipa ,

 

Thank you for posting your inquiry about timeouts. Without the full log, I can provide only some "if you see this, do that" kind of instructions.

 

If you see an ERROR message with:
org.apache.nifi.controller.UninheritableFlowException: Failed to connect node to cluster because local flow is different than cluster flow, then follow the below is the steps to resolve the issue:
1. Go to NIFi UI > Global Menu > Cluster
2. Check which host is the coordinator and login to that host on the shell.
3. Go to flow.xml.gz file location. [default location is /var/lib/nifi/conf/]
4. Copy flow.xml.gz on the disconnected node and replace the original flow.xml.gz with copied flow.xml.gz file.
5. Check permissions and ownership of newly copied flow.xml.gz file and then restart Nifi on the disconnected node only.

 

If you are suspecting purely timeout issues, please attempt to tweak the below values in nifi.properties and restart the service:
- nifi.cluster.node.protocol.threads=50 (Default 10)
- nifi.cluster.node.connection.timeout=30 sec (Default 5 sec)
- nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=30 sec (Default 5 sec)


Please find below a set of configurations that worth tuning on larger clusters based on https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/html/administration-guide.html
The below are some example values for larger clusters (you need to tune it based on your unique setup):
nifi.cluster.node.protocol.threads=70
nifi.cluster.node.protocol.max.threads=100
nifi.zookeeper.session.timeout=30 sec
nifi.zookeeper.connect.timeout=30 sec
nifi.cluster.node.connection.timeout=60 sec
nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=60 sec
nifi.ui.autorefresh.interval=900 sec
nifi.cluster.protocol.heartbeat.interval=20 sec
nifi.components.status.repository.buffer.size=300
nifi.components.status.snapshot.frequency=5 mins
nifi.cluster.node.protocol.max.threads=120
nifi.cluster.node.protocol.threads=80
nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=90 sec
nifi.cluster.node.connection.timeout=90 sec
nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=90 sec

 

Please check if you notice any certificate related exception, like:
WARN [Clustering Tasks Thread-2] o.apache.nifi.controller.FlowController Failed to send heartbeat due to: org.apache.nifi.cluster.protocol.ProtocolException: Failed marshalling 'HEARTBEAT' protocol message due to: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate

In this case, create a new keystore and truststore and add client auth in the keystore.

Ferenc
