New features

    Cluster Impala Workload report is added, which presents the workload details in a heatmap. This report is supported only on CDH platforms.

Improvements and enhancements

  • Tez tab for Hive is displayed for MapR after you set the following property:



  • Hive versions lesser than 1.10 are no longer supported.

  • Impala is not supported for MapR.

  • Kerberos is not supported for MapR.

  • Migration Planning and Capacity Forecasting are not supported for MapR.

Bug fixes

  • Applications

    • Some of the Hive apps do not show data/DAG. (ASP-954)

  • UI

    • Cluster Impala Workload page is displayed on MapR clusters where Impala is not supported. (UIX-3658)

  • CDP

    • In CDP 7.1.5, the rowSizePattern does not match for most of the operators in an Impala query. (ASP-951)

  • EMR: Hive metrics may not be published in the RUNNING state. (HIVE-135)

  • INSERT statements are not included in the App count on HDI. (DATAPAGE-256)

  • The accessed partition does not support Hive on Tez etc. It only supports Hive on MR. (DATAPAGE-250)

  • Datapage does not load the total table and partition size KPI's (DATAPAGE-379)

  • Resource metrics will not be collected for JDK versions that are equal to or greater than 9 without using the extra JVM switches as mentioned below:

    Workaround: All metrics can be collected if the following options are used for sensor JVM

    --add-exports java.base/jdk.internal.perf=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens

    For example:

    JDK9_MODULE="--add-exports java.base/jdk.internal.perf=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens"

    These JVM options are valid for JDK9 - JDK15. Without these JVM options, the following metrics are not collected:

    • ProcessCpuLoad, ProcessCpuTime, SystemCpuLoad

    • PerfCounters metrics

  • gc load metric sensor for MR application will not load on EMR.

  • Spark applications that run in the local mode do not use YARN resources, so these applications will be shown using 0 resources in Unravel. (PLATFORM-2809)

  • Intermittent issue in fetching the Btrace data for MR applications. (PLATFORM-2807)

  • Killed MR apps do not display RM diagnostics. (PLATFORM-2815)

  • Certain users and queues are missing in the Cluster Compare report. (REPORT-1342)

  • In the Cluster Compare report, the same value trends are highlighted instead of trends with different values. This is fixed in the New UX. (REPORT-1479)

  • There is a lag seen while streaming Spark SQL applications. (PLATFORM-2764)

  • For PySpark applications, the processCPUTime and the processCPULoad are not captured properly. (USPARK-626)

  • The number of TEZ applications in an Oozie workflow is sometimes incorrect. (PLATFORM-2403)

  • For streaming applications, the global search with application ID does not work. (UIX-3312)
