Subject RE: Is this a long GC pause, or something else?

1. Do you have GC logging enabled on your cluster? It does not look like GC - pause to me but
for future troubleshooting it is better
to enable GC logging.

2. How large is your cluster? Did you check NN and DN logs as well? Are all your nodes (RS
and DN) up and running? No dead nodes?

Best regards,

We are still using 0.94.10. We are looking at upgrading soon, but have not
done so yet.
