Ambari Forum

Jobs are not displayed under the Job tab in Ambari 1.5.1

    We have configured an Ambari cluster using the Apache Ambari Install wizard for which Ambari version is 1.5.1 and Cluster Stack Version: HDP-2.1.
    Now, when I login to Ambari console using admin/normal user I am able to see the Jobs tab. However, when I click on the Jobs tab , no jobs are displayed there.
    However, the JobHistory UI Link displayed under the Quicklinks section of the MapReduce2 section on the LHS displays job history.

    Am therefore, unable to figure out as to why the Jobs tab is not displaying any jobs ? Have I missed out on any configuration that had to be added.
    Also, the Jobs type on the Extreme RHS shows Hive. Now, does it mean that only the jobs submiited via hive queries will be listed here or even the yarn (mapreduce jobs) will be displayed here.

    The job summary related info in the config at /etc/hadoop/conf/ on the JobTracker host is as follows:

    # Job Summary Appender
    # Use following logger to send summary to separate file defined by
    # hadoop.mapreduce.jobsummary.log.file rolled daily:
    # hadoop.mapreduce.jobsummary.logger=INFO,JSA
    # Set the ResourceManager summary log filename
    # Set the ResourceManager summary log level and appender

    # To enable AppSummaryLogging for the RM,
    # set yarn.server.resourcemanager.appsummary.logger to

    # Appender for ResourceManager Application Summary Log
    # Requires the following properties to be set
    # – hadoop.log.dir (Hadoop Log directory)
    # – yarn.server.resourcemanager.appsummary.log.file (resource manager app summary log filename)
    # – yarn.server.resourcemanager.appsummary.logger (resource manager app summary log level and appender)
    log4j.appender.RMSUMMARY.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ISO8601} %p %c{2}: %m%n
    log4j.appender.JSA.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{yy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss} %p %c{2}: %m%n

    Hi, The jobs tab in Ambari 1.5.1 display job information related to Hive Queries submitted to the Tez engine. It’s currently not for general jobs information.

The forum ‘Ambari’ is closed to new topics and replies.
