ambari Agent Auto Restart Doesn't Release Ping Port

ambari Agent Auto Restart Doesn't Release Ping Port

We have ambari cluster , HDP version – 2.6.4 and ambari version – 2.6.1

We have a serious problem with the ambari agents on all machines in the cluster !!

 

For example lets take on machine – data node machine

 

On this machine we loose the heartbeat many times ( its mean agent stopped to talk with ambari server ) , therefore as workaround we restart the ambari agent and this fixed the issue , But its return again and again

 

Some times we see port in use from ambari agent log , so we kill the PID and restart the ambari agent ( we capture the PID from netstat and port number ) But this behavior return many times

 

Lets summary the case – seems this is maybe network problem or some interrupt that break the connection between ambari agent to ambari server , but we not have solution and we not sure about this

Please advice how to find the root cause?

@mike_bronson7 
Can you try changing the "ping_port" (default value 8670) to something else on the node where you are keep noticing the "Ping port listener killed" message?

# grep ping /etc/ambari-agent/conf/ambari-agent.ini
ping_port=8670

 Then restart the Ambari Agent. I am suspecting that some other process might be attempting to use that port or might be keep trying to connect to that port.

@mike_bronson7 

Are you still facing the ping port issue (even with non default port 8670) ?

Dear Jay

it was Lab cluster , and we reinstall it 

so if this issue will return again on our lab , I will try to change the port number as you suggest
