ALM-16003 Background Thread Usage Exceeds the Threshold

Updated at: Aug 17, 2021 GMT+08:00

Description

The system checks the background thread usage in every 30 seconds. This alarm is generated when the usage of the background thread pool of Hive exceeds the threshold, 90% by default.

MRS 3.X supports the multi-instance function. If the multi-instance function is enabled in the cluster and multiple Hive services are installed, determine the Hive service for which the alarm is generated based on the value of ServiceName in Location of the alarm. For example, if Hive1 service is unavailable, ServiceName is set to Hive1 in Location, and the operation object in the handling procedure is changed from Hive to Hive1.

Parameters

Name

Meaning

Source

Specifies the cluster for which the alarm is generated.

ServiceName

Specifies the service for which the alarm is generated.

RoleName

Specifies the role for which the alarm is generated.

HostName

Specifies the host for which the alarm is generated.

Trigger condition

Specifies the threshold triggering the alarm. If the current indicator value exceeds this threshold, the alarm is generated.

Impact on the System

There are too many background threads, so the newly submitted task cannot run in time.

Possible Causes

The usage of the background thread pool of Hive is excessively high when:
  • There are many tasks executed in the background thread pool of HiveServer.
  • The capacity of the background thread pool of HiveServer is too small.

Procedure

Check the number of tasks executed in the background thread pool of HiveServer.

  1. On the FusionInsight Manager portal, choose Cluster > Name of the desired cluster > Services > Hive. On the displayed page, click HiveServer Instance and check values of Background Thread Count and Background Thread Usage.
  2. Check whether the number of background threads in the latest half an hour is excessively high. (By default, the queue number is 100, and the thread number is considered as high if it is 90 or larger.)

    • If it is, go to 3.
    • If it is not, go to 5.

  3. Adjust the number of tasks submitted to the background thread pool. (For example, cancel some time-consuming tasks with low performance.)
  4. Check whether the values of Background Thread Count and Background Thread Usage decrease.

    • If it is, go to 7.
    • If it is not, go to 5.

Check the capacity of the HiveServer background thread pool.

  1. On the FusionInsight Manager portal, choose Cluster > Name of the desired cluster > Services > Hive. On the displayed page, click HiveServer Instance and check values of Background Thread Count and Background Thread Usage.
  2. Increase the value of hive.server2.async.exec.threads in the ${BIGDATA_HOME}/FusionInsight_HD_8.1.0.1/1_23_HiveServer/etc/hive-site.xml file. For example, increase the value by 20%.
  3. Save the modification.
  4. Check whether the alarm is cleared.

    • If it is, no further action is required.
    • If it is not, go to 9.

Collect fault information.

  1. On the FusionInsight Manager portal, choose O&M > Log > Download.
  2. Select Hive in the required cluster from the Service.
  3. Click in the upper right corner, and set Start Date and End Date for log collection to 10 minutes ahead of and after the alarm generation time, respectively. Then, click Download.
  4. Contact the O&M personnel and send the collected logs.

Alarm Clearing

After the fault is rectified, the system automatically clears this alarm.
