HI Team,

I am getting below an error while importing tables from oracle database.

Please see attached screenshots of an error.

Hello, if you run the application again, check the specific application log for more information. You can post that file as well.


See this and also run yarn log -applicationid application_1459150653243_0002 and post the output



@Neeraj Sabharwal

showing below error

[hdfs@nn1 ~]$ yarn log -applicationid application_1459150653243_0004

yarn logs -applicationId <app_id>

Below is the output I got after issuing command

/app-logs/hdfs/logs/application_1459253164991_0004 does not have any log files.

Did just see your ExitCode: -1000 (just answered the yarn logs typo first). -1000 indicates a permission problem on your local usercache.

* First find your local cache. From the error above it looks like /hadoop/yarn/local/filecache?

* Parameters involved: If you don't have the yarn.nodemanager.local-dirs configured anywhere, look for it in the default location ${hadoop.tmp.dir}/nm-local-dir. If the hadoop.tmp.dir is not configured in the core-site.xml, it will be under /tmp/hadoop-${}. The is the UNIX user that you are using to run the current Hadoop process.

* For the next step please be careful to pick the correct file/dir if it's a cluster with several jobs runnings.

* Then delete the files/directories under the local cache related to your user/job at all the node manager nodes. Also make sure you have appropriate space available for the local cache. Please observe that you have to do this on all your nodes.

No I can`t see Exitcode: -1000 please find below output for the same

[hdfs@nn1 ~]$ yarn logs -applicationId application_1459253164991_0004

16/03/30 11:43:47 INFO impl.TimelineClientImpl: Timeline service address: http://nn1.hdp.local:8188/ws/v1/timeline/ 16/03/30 11:43:47 INFO client.RMProxy: Connecting to ResourceManager at nn1.hdp.local/ /app-logs/hdfs/logs/application_1459253164991_0004 does not have any log files.

Along with this please see the output where I can not find 14_tmp folder in /hadoop/yarn/local/filcache .

@Nilesh - There are ExitCode -1000 in your first post and also in your latest screen dump. -1000 are related to permissions on the local cache directories on every node.

If there is no /hadoop/yarn/... directory structure, check the yarn.nodemanager.local-dirs and related parameters in core-site.xml.

If dir exists - check those directories for permissions and free space. Also check which OS user/group is running the failing job and make sure it has the correct permissions.

If the job runs for a while before failing please check the size of the files under /hadoop/yarn/local so it does not reach any OS or filesystem limits.


@Mats Johansson

I changed "yarn.nodemanager.local-dirs" parameter from /hadoop/yarn/local to /tmp/yarn/local from ambari and recursively changed permission to 777 for /yarn/local folder. Also there is sufficient space available in /tmp but still got same error
