live datanodes are limited to two, keep changing itself, but can't live more than two nodes

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

I am facing very strange behaviour of live data nodes. I have hdp 2.6.4 running with four data nodes. At a time, only two datanodes can be live. I search in datanode logs no issue was showing there.

When I check the webui of namenodes for sometime then i figure out that the live nodes are changing itself after sometime. in my case, node5 to node-8 are datanodes. sometime node-5 and node6 are live then after sometime node-6 and node8 are live and keep changing after sometime.

How can I solve this issue.

Now I added 8 data nodes, only five of them are live. Still facing the same issue, when I check the namenode web ui to check the datanodes, still datanodes are changing itself after sometime, but total number of live datanode is 5 out of 8. Any help or guide will be helpful to troubleshoot this issue.

see the namenode web ui, in pic one it is showing node-7 is live and pic-2 it is showing node-8 is live.

I am continuously getting this type message in namenode logs, adding and removing nodes
