What's New in HDF 3.0.0

ComponentNew features
Streaming Analytics Manager

Stream Analytics Manager is a new HDF component.

Use Streaming Analytics Manager to design, develop, deploy and manage streaming analytics apps with a drag-and-drop visualization paradigm. Streaming Analytics Manager allows you to build streaming analytics apps for event correlation, context enrichment, complex pattern matching, and analytic aggregations. You can create alerts and notifications when insights are discovered.

Streaming Analytics Manager is agnostic to the underlying streaming engine, and it can support multiple streaming substrates such as Storm, Spark Streaming, Flink, etc. The first streaming engine fully supported is Apache Storm.

Schema Registry

Schema Registry is a new HDF component.

Schema Registry improves end-to-end data governance and operational efficiency by providing a centralized registry, supporting version management and enabling schema validation.

There are three major benefits for this new module:

  • Centralized registry – A shared repository of schemas eliminates the need to attach schema to every piece of data. Applications can flexibly interact with each other in order to save or retrieve schemas for the data they need to access. Fully integrated with the flow management component of HDF, including NiFi, Schema Registry allows schemas created using NiFi to be easily managed and reused by the entire platform.

  • Version management – Defines relationships between schemas and enables schemas to be shared between HDF components and applications. Schema Registry supports schema evolution so that a consumer and producer can understand different schema versions but still read all the information shared between them.

  • Schema validation – Schema Registry supports schema validation by enabling generic format conversion and generic routing to ensure data quality.

HDF Flow Management

Powered by Apache NiFi 1.2.0 now supports:

  • Running multiple versions of the same component

  • Real-time data provenance indexing

  • New change data capture options such as reading directly from MySQL binlogs

  • Record oriented capability to acquire and route event data with easy schema aware transformations between formats such as Avro, JSON, CSV

Unsupported Features

Some features exist within HDF 3.0.0, but Hortonworks does not currently support these capabilities.

Technical Preview Features

The following features are available within HDF 3.0.0 but are not ready for production deployment. Hortonworks encourages you to explore these technical preview features in non-production environments and provide feedback on your experiences through the Hortonworks Community Forums.

Community Driven Features

The following features are developed and tested by the Hortonworks community but are not officially supported by Hortonworks. These features are excluded for a variety of reasons, including insufficient reliability or incomplete test case coverage, declaration of non-production readiness by the community at large, and feature deviation from Hortonworks best practices. Do not use these features in your production environments.

Unsupported Customizations

Hortonworks cannot guarantee that default NiFi processors are compatible with proprietary protocol implementations or proprietary interface extensions. For example, we support interfaces like JMS and JDBC that are built around standards, specifications, or open protocols. But we do not support customizations of those interfaces, or proprietary extensions built on top of those interfaces.

Deprecated Technologies

This section points out any technology from previous releases that has been deprecated or removed from this release (operating systems, Java versions, databases, product features). Use this section as a guide for your implementation plans.

Deprecated

Technology that Hortonworks is removing in a future release. Deprecated items are supported until they are removed; deprecation gives you time to plan for removal.

Removed

Technology that Hortonworks has removed from production and is no longer supported.

Summary

BUG-82327 Streaming Analytics Manager

Issue: In HA installations of SAM, you may run into a situation where bootstrap has not been executed.

Result: When bootstrap has not been started, the UI displays the following message:

1. No component definitions found.
2. Please run ./bin/streamline bootstrap to 
initialize the component definitions.

Workaround for a secured cluster:

kinit -kt /etc/security/keytabs/streamline.service.keytab 
streamline-{cluster_name_in_lower-case}@domain

Workaround for an unsecured cluster:

cd /usr/hdf/current/streamline
./bootstrap/bootstrap.sh
BUG-82398 NiFi

Issue: For some VMs and operating systems, insufficient entropy may cause NiFi startup and runtime to be extremely slow.

Workaround: To work aeound this issue, update your bootstrap template.

  1. From the Ambari UI, select NiFi, and click the Configs tab.

  2. Scroll to Advanced nifi-bootstrap-env.

  3. Add the following line the java arguement section of your bootstrap template:

    java.arg.17=-Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom

If java.arg.17is already in use, replace it with the next available number. For example:

java.arg.18=-Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom

BUG-82561AMBARI-21291Ambari/HDF

Issue: You may experience a schema error when upgrading to Ambari 2.5.1.

Error Message:

WARN [main] DBAccessorImpl:814 - Error executing query: UPDATE request AS a SET cluster_host_info = b.cluster_host_info FROM stage AS b WHERE a.request_id = b.request_id, errorCode = 0, message = ERROR: column b.cluster_host_info does not exist
