Subject Re: LeaseExpiredException while test data creation on ppc64le
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2016 17:04:44 GMT
Thanks a lot Tim! I did check some of the impalad*. Error, impalad*.info,
and other logs in cluster_logs/data_loading. Couple of observations-
1. Dependency on SSE3, error says exiting as hardware does not support SSE3.
2. One error says to increase num_of_threads_per_disk (something related to
number of threads, not sure about exact variable name) while starting
3. A few log files say that bad_alloc

I'm analysing all these errors. I'll dig more into this tomorrow and update
One more help I wanted from you is in predicting the amount of work I may
be left with and possible challenges ahead. It would be really great if you
could point that to me from the logs I had posted.

Also, about LLVM 3.7 fixes you did, I was wondering if you have completed
upgradation, since you have also started encountering crashes.

Thanks again!

Hi Nishidha,
  I started working on our next release cycle towards the end of last week,
so I've been looking at LLVM 3.7 and have made a bit of progress getting it
working on intel. We're trying to get it done working so we have plenty of
chance to test it.

RE the TTransportException error, that is often because of a crash. Usually
to debug I would first look at the /tmp/impalad.ERROR and /tmp/impalad.INFO
logs for the cause of the crash. The embedded JVM also generates
hs_err_pid*.log files with a crash report that can sometimes be useful. If
that doesn't reveal the cause, then I'd look to see if there is a core dump
in the Impala directory (I normally run with "ulimit -c unlimited" set so
that a crash will generate a core file).

I already fixed a couple of problems with codegen in LLVM 3.7, including
one crash that was an assertion about struct sizes. I'll be posting the
patch soon once I've done a bit more testing.

It might help to make progress is you disable LLVM codegen by default
during data loading by setting the following environment variable:


You can also start the test cluster with the same arguments or just set it
in the set with "set disable_codegen=1).
