Cloudera Hadoop Node Requirements

Hostnames needs to be full FQDN, example:


Setup ntpdate

# systemctl enable ntpdate
# systemctl start ntpd
# sed -i_bak "s/\(nameserver\) .*/\1" /etc/resolv.conf
# ntpdate -u is the gateway


Cloudera recommends setting /proc/sys/vm/swappiness to a maximum of 10

# sysctl vm.swappiness=10

and add
vm.swappiness = 10
to /etc/sysctl.conf make it permanent.


Transparent Huge Page Compaction when enabled can cause significant performance problem, disable it by running:

# echo never > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
# echo never > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/defrag

And then add the same command to an init script as /etc/rc.local so it will be set on system reboot.
