Spark in YARN with Namenode HA

Spark in YARN with Namenode HA

Explorer

Hi HWX,

I do have HDP2.3.4 with Namenode HA. I submitted Spark jobs properly until one Namenode went down. Since then, no more Spark jobs are starting.

It looks like the HDFS client is not falling back properly to the second Namenode properly:

$ hdfs dfs -ls /tmp
... working fine...
$ spark-shell --master yarn-master
...snip...

.. and so on until I lost my patience...

If I'm changing the ip address in /etc/hosts to point 10.10.10.111 to the active namenode, then it is moving forward.

As I said it's a fresh HDP 2.3.4 install, without anything fancy.

Thanks

Benoit

Re: Spark in YARN with Namenode HA

java.net.NoRouteToHostException is considered a failure that can be recovered from in any deployment with floating IP addresses. This was essentially the sole form of failover in Hadoop pre NN-HA (HADOOP-6667 added the check). I think we ought to revisit that decision

How to reproduce: HDP 2.3.4 with NameNode HA, kill the namenode listed first in the configuration, try to launch spark-shell in yarn mode.

I think you have bigger issues than having your Spark application not running. You need to fix the HA failover first before you can do anything else as it's the core of your environment. Go to the /var/log/hadoop/hdfs/ directory on the 2nd node where namenode is not coming up and review the logs, paste them here and we may help you out. @Benoit Perroud

Well, Hive and everything else is working fine in this degraded HA mode, the only one having problems is Spark.

Active Namenode logs (I just striped out BlockStateChange noise) is given below. There's no stacktrace or anything validating the hypothesis of problem in the HA setup.

I reproduced the problem on several environments as follow:

  1. Setup a fresh cluster with NameNode HA
  2. spark-shell --master yarn-master works fine
  3. Figure out which namenode is referred as nn1 in hdfs-site.xml
  4. Shutdown this namenode referred as nn1
  5. spark-shell --master yarn-master is failing, waiting infinitely on nn1:8020

If you shutdown the second Namenode in the list of dfs.ha.namenodes.<nameservice>, spark is still working fine.

This makes me thinking that Spark HDFS client, as surprising as it could be, is not falling back to the other namenode.

After turning on more logging, it looks like by default it is trying 500 times before falling back to the other namenode:

There are some tickets speaking about dfs.client.retry.policy.enabled to be turned on or off (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-11192 and https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-12138, as well as https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12078), but in the case of Spark, this does not seem to have any impact...

My reading of the logs tells me that, for some reason, java.net.NoRouteToHostException is not considered as a failure and the client keep retrying the same namenode, while what I'm expecting is to try with the next in the list...
