Re: NameNode High Availability Health Ambari alert

Hi Srini,

do you solved your issue ?

I have the same issue and when I have it, it is linked with an error message in the Active (or Standby) NameNode

log (hadoop-hdfs-namenode-ServerXXXX.log) like :

"2017-12-23 07:47:01,761 INFO util.JvmPauseMonitor (JvmPauseMonitor.java:run(196)) - Detected pause in JVM or host machine (eg GC): pause of approximately 4572ms
No GCs detected"

Now, I need to understand which process causes the process load issue.

I hope it can help you.

Best Regards

Gérald
