NodeManager fails to start - IO error: lock

Rising Star

One of our clients have asked us to move the prefixed log location to a different mounted point for all the service logs, for example the prefix log location for hdfs is moved from /var/log/hadoop to /hdp/logs/hadoop via api calls.

Everything restarted smoothly however only one NM is coming up out of 5, and a manual restart only works on the first NM.

All other NM are through the same error, below;

"

As we can see it is not complaining about LOCK file bot present but unavailable, as whichever NM starts first acquire this LOCK (remember this is a single mount point and not local file-system)

If I change the log location back to local file-system even for example /tmp/yarnlogs its works smooth since all the NM get access to LOCK file on local file-system where ever they are installed.

Has someone faces this issue and can you please suggest a fix to this.

Thanks Mayank

Re: NodeManager fails to start - IO error: lock

Hi @mkataria ,

did I understand that correct, do all the Nodemanagers have kind of network storage mounted and want to write to /hdp/logs/hadoop-yarn/nodemanager/recovery-state/yarn-nm-state ?

This won't work since every NM wants to keep his own state in dir ..../yarn-nm-state, therefore just one NM can create the LOCK file there (besides the files keeping the state).

Logging to a central directory for that cases is difficult.

One solution could be to put each NM in a different config group, and specify the log directory for each config group, e.g.

/hdp/logs/hadoop-yarn/nm1

/hdp/logs/hadoop-yarn/nm2

...

Regards, Gerd

@Gerd Koenig I had same doubts thanks for confirming, can you share something on putting NM to diff, config groups at your leisure.

Hi @mkataria ,

sure, I'll try my best.

First click on service 'HDFS' in Ambari, then

1596-manage-config-groups.png

In the next dialog, create one config-group per Nodemanager , provide a corresponding name and assign that node to that config group

1597-add-config-group.png

Then get back to the "general" HDFS config page (picture 1), select a config group and adjust the log destination for that particular Nodemanager-node (==config-group).

...and restart HDFS

@mkataria check the disk on the nodes, permissions, mount options, space, etc.

@Artem Ervits checked all of those and does not seems to be an issue
