Ambari Forum

Ambari 1.4.2 – No Data There was not data available.

  • #46557
    Pavel Hladik

    Hi, I installed latest HDP 2.0.6 stack from Ambari 1.4.2 on CentOS 6.5. Everything went well, except to patch /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ambari_server/ file with patch from 1.4.3.

    Ganglia is working on 100% and I see all statistics on Ganglia Web UI, but Ambari 1.4.2 don’t show this values. :( All services on Ambari is green, I see that Ganglia server and all monitors are UP and working. Does somebody have the same issue?

    My Ganglia server is running on master host where is Ambari server as well, when I see packages with yum…

    [root@hm hdp]# yum list |grep ambari
    ambari-agent.x86_64 @Updates-ambari-
    ambari-log4j.noarch @Updates-ambari-
    ambari-server.noarch @Updates-ambari-
    hdp_mon_nagios_addons.noarch @Updates-ambari-
    hdp_mon_ganglia_addons.noarch Updates-ambari-

    …I see there is not installed package hdp_mon_ganglia_addons.noarch, isn’t that issue?

    Please help! I’m on testing process before production release and buying support from Hortonworks.

    Hi, It is not an issue with hdp_mon_ganglia_addons. That does not need to be installed.

    To confirm: the charts on the Dashboard (network, cpu, disk, load), on the Services pages and on the Host pages are not showing. They are all saying “no data available”?

    Can you confirm:

    1) On all machines, you see gmond processes running. ps -ef | grep gmond
    2) And on the machine hosting the ganglia server, you see the gmetad process running. ps -ef | grep gmetad
    3) All machines in your cluster are the same time? ntpd running?
    4) The machine you are accessing Ambari Web with (via a browser), how close is that time to the time of the machines in your cluster?

    Hi Jeff, thanks for reply.

    All charts on the Dashboard site are showing correctly, except one “NameNode CPU WIO” – n/a. On the Services site, on HDFS service I see just one metrics working “HDFS I/O”, all other metrics are “No Data There was no data available. Possible reasons include inaccessible Ganglia Service”. When I’m going to YARN service I see no metrics at all.

    On all Ganglia client machines I see running:
    /usr/sbin/gmond –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/HDPSlaves/gmond.core.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/HDPSlaves/
    When I check chkconfig –list | grep gmond:
    gmond 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
    hdp-gmond 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

    On Ganglia server machine I see running:
    /usr/sbin/gmond –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/HDPHistoryServer/gmond.core.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/HDPHistoryServer/
    /usr/sbin/gmond –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/HDPResourceManager/gmond.core.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/HDPResourceManager/
    /usr/sbin/gmond –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/HDPSlaves/gmond.core.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/HDPSlaves/
    /usr/sbin/gmond –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/HDPNameNode/gmond.core.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/HDPNameNode/
    /usr/sbin/gmetad –conf=/etc/ganglia/hdp/gmetad.conf –pid-file=/var/run/ganglia/hdp/
    When I check: chkconfig –list | grep gmond
    gmond 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
    hdp-gmond 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
    When I check: chkconfig –list | grep gmetad
    gmetad 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
    hdp-gmetad 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

    All my two masters, three slaves and one client machines are the same CentOS 6.5 running as Guests on XenServer Host – for testing purposes. Ale machines are running NTPD server syncing with router on LAN. I’m accessing Ambari 1.4.2 server with NTP synched OS, I tried to access Ambari server from the Desktop PC from the same LAN and result with charts and metrics was the same. I’m accessing Ambari server from Safari browser by default, but tried Chrome and IE as well. All my hostnames are FQDN.

    When I go to Hosts site, choose the machine I see incomplete information about host:
    Hostname: myhostname
    IP Address: myipaddress
    OS: centos6 (x86_64)
    CPU: 2
    Disk: Data Unavailable
    Memory: 15.52GB
    Load Avg:
    Agent Heartbeat: less than a minute ago

    Thanks for helping me.

    1) On the NameNode machine, “ps -ef | grep gmond”. Also run “service hdp-gmond status”.
    2) Same on the ResourceManager machine.

    I installed HDP 2.0.6 stack (why is not there choose to install newer version 2.0.8 or 2.0.9?) with new Ambari on my test environment with instructions from this docs

    My problem which I described here still persist even with new version of Ambari. :(

    Hi, this Problem on Ambari dashboard NO DATA,
    Ganglia host / ganglia shows all metrics
    using Ambari-server version 1.6.0

    thank for the answer


    Jeff Sposetti

    On the other Ambari pages (Services pages, and Host pages) do you see the charts? Is it just the dashboard 4 graphs (CPU, network, load, memory) that are not showing?

    Resetpc Resetpc

    Here are screenshots of my cluster installed on the host Ganglia-server
    ganglia and screenshots

    Problem Ganglia and displays all, dashboard Ambari-server not all

    Pavel Hladik

    Hi, when I start this thread I had bad FQDN, because I was using private IP addresses my /etc/hosts looked like this: host

    And this was my problem that I didn’t see the graphs, the right /etc/hosts must be:

    Resetpc Resetpc

    This is verified
    [@VM-HDP1-AMBARI-1 ~]$ hostname -f
    [@VM-HDP1-AMBARI-1 ~]$ nslookup


    [@VM-HDP1-AMBARI-1 ~]$ nslookup
    Address: name =

    Time and service, too.
    On that host has two interfaces
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr: Mask:

    Resetpc Resetpc

    whether you can explicitly specify the Ambari dashboard where to get data Ganglia.
    Thanks for the answer.
