How do you debug MorphlineCompilationException occurrences?

Explorer

I'm getting the following error when trying to use Flume-ng Solr Sink. There is not enough info to point me to the acctual cause of the problem :-( If there is something wrong with the syntax of the morphline.conf then shouldn't there be some error message that points to the offending line in the config?

 

Thanks in advance for any guidance in debugging this.

Re: How do you debug MorphlineCompilationException occurrences?

Expert Contributor
Here is how it works with CM: Paste the contents of your morphline config file into the CM text box as described here:

https://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/CM4Ent/latest/Cloudera-Manager-Manag...

Cloudera Manager automatically uploads and deploys said pasted morphline config to the Flume agent's process directory as "morphlines.conf" when it starts the Flume agent. Therefore, you can reference the morphline config file in the Flume agent's configuration file using only the (relative path) name. For example, in flume.conf you can use the name morphlines.conf to refer to the location of the morphlines configuration file.

Ok, setting morphlineFile = morphlines.conf works

Your classpath is missing the CDK jar files.

Why would this be the case if I installed via parcels via Cloudera Manager 4.8?

Re: How do you debug MorphlineCompilationException occurrences?

If the problem is the Exception class itself is not found, then that makes no sense to me because the folowing shows it occurs in core

Re: How do you debug MorphlineCompilationException occurrences?

Expert Contributor
Ah, this is a known issue with parcels (but not with packages) - CDH-16144.

The work-around is to add the setting SEARCH_HOME=/opt/cloudera/parcels/SOLR/lib/search to the CM configuration > Flume > Service Wide > Flume Service Environment Safety Valve.

(The issue is already fixed for the next upcoming release)

OK, thanks I will try this and let you know...

Re: How do you debug MorphlineCompilationException occurrences?

OK, that fixes that error, but now I get this...

com.cloudera.cdk.morphline.api.MorphlineCompilationException: Cannot parse morphline file: /etc/flume-ng/conf/morphline.conf

 

My Flume config in CM has the following as per http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh4/cdh/4/flume-ng/FlumeUserGuide.html#morphlinesolrsink

 

tier1.sinks.mysink.morphlineFile = /etc/flume-ng/conf/morphline.conf

 

However, no such file exists...

 

ls /etc/flume-ng/conf/morphline.conf
ls: cannot access /etc/flume-ng/conf/morphline.conf: No such file or directory

 

but I noticed that there are a whole bunch of morphlines.conf files managed by the agent (see below), so is there some env var to substitute for morphlineFile assignment that will always point to most recent conf managed y CM?
