Is there a method to disable the SmartSense Gateway?

New Contributor

I have recently installed the SmartSense version 1.3.1.0-136 component in my HDP stack.

When performing a manual capture, I discovered the bundle contains information for only one node, the HST-Server.

The hst-server logs roll through a series of Java errors:

These errors are to be expected as external network connectivity is not present within my environment. I have not experienced similar problems when using a previous version of SmartSense. Manual bundle uploads are preferred. I understand the benefits of a Gateway node, but I simply don't want to configure one.

Hortonworks SmartSense documentation and conversations within this forum assume the desired use of a Gateway node. Ambari configurations for SmartSense do not provide an option to disable the Gateway. One method that I found to remove the Gateway results in completely uninstalling the HST service.

I greatly appreciate any information or support that the Hortonworks Community can provide.

Add the below attribute under custom hst-server-conf section via Ambari:

gateway.enabled = false

HST-Server Log Output (/var/log/hst/hst-server.log):
