I am attempting to build a cloud in EC2 following the documentation in . When the manager provisions the nodes, the root volume ends up having less than 5G of free space, triggering alarms for /var/log/cloudera-scm-agent .
There doesn't seem to be a way to specify a good size through the GUI. I have considered symlinking this path to the ephemeral data volume (do I really need these logs to be persistent?) but that seems like a bad idea. I made a quick attempt at creating an AMI with a larger volume, but there are authentication issues during installation that I don't know how to fix.
I think the ideal short-term solution would be to modify a config file, causing cloud-init to provision with a larger root volume, but I have not been able to find such a config. Thoughts?
Cloudera Enterprise 4.3 Trial
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 (the nodes are 6.3)
Use the High Storage HS1 EC2 instances, which are recommended for Hadoop.
