New features
  • None

Improvements and enhancements
  • UI

    • UI changes to show diagnostics message as tooltip/popup for failed task attempts. This is only for Tez. (ASP-1082, ASP-1030)

Bug fixes
  • Kafka

    • NPE exception is seen while processing stream metadata. (ASP-1079)

  • Applications

    • The streaming graph is absent in the last attempt for multi-attempt streaming applications. (ASP-1081)

  • Reports

    • Handle Resource Manager HA for Migration reports. (REPORT-1829)

  • Tez

    • Disable ATS polling on the cloud to avoid data inconsistency and Tez DAG issues. (CUSTOMER-1688)

    • Tez application missing. (SUPPORT-473)

  • UI

    • Unexpected token in index.js. (UX-637)

    • The Spark Streaming app topic is linked to the Kafka page. (CUSTOMER-1705)

  • Hive versions before 1.10 are no longer supported.

  • Spark: Lag in reflecting the status of apps in ES. (ASP-974)

  • EMR: Hive metrics may not be published in the RUNNING state.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

  • 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)

  • Ondemand reports are not generated after the upgrade. (REPORT-1850)

    Workaround: After upgrade, if the reports are not generated, restart the ondemand daemon.

    sudo service unravel_ondemand restart
  • 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)

  • Summary of MapSlotDuration and ReduceSlotDuration is not getting updated in the TopX report. (REPORT-1757)

  • 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)
