kudu service are getting down frequently

Re: kudu service are getting down frequently

Expert Contributor
I would strongly recommend NOT running with hybrid time turned off for one
simple reason: tablet history GC will not work. Therefore when you delete
or update a row the history of that data will be kept forever. Eventually
you may run out of disk space. The one exception is if you drop a table,
then the data for that table will be permanently removed regardless of
hybrid time.

You need to configure NTP correctly. "Four NTP servers is the recommended minimum. Four servers protects against one incorrect timesource, or "falseticker". " for tips in configuring NTP. https://access.redhat.com/solutions/58025

We have NTP servers, wondering why only Kudu impacted.

NTP and clock offset impacted a complete node and not a service.
