Long term component architecture

As the main curator of open standards in Hadoop, Cloudera has a track record of bringing new open source solutions into its platform (such as Apache Spark, Apache HBase, and Apache Parquet) that are eventually adopted by the community at large. As standards, you can build longterm architecture on these components with confidence.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

With the exception of DSSD support, Cloudera Enterprise 5.6.0 is identical to CDH 5.5.2/Cloudera Manager 5.5.3  If you do not need DSSD support, you do not need to upgrade if you are already using the latest 5.5.x release.

  1. MySQL 5.5 is supported on CDH 5.1. MySQL 5.6 is supported on CDH 5.1 and later. The InnoDB storage engine must be enabled in the MySQL server.
  2. PostgreSQL 9.2 is supported on CDH 5.1 and later. PostgreSQL 9.3 is supported on CDH 5.2 and later.
  3. For the purposes of transferring data only, Sqoop 1 supports MySQL 5.0 and above, PostgreSQL 8.4 and above, Oracle 10.2 and above, Teradata 13.10 and above, and Netezza TwinFin 5.0 and above. The Sqoop metastore works only with HSQLDB (1.8.0 and higher 1.x versions; the metastore does not work with any HSQLDB 2.x versions).
  4. Sqoop 2 can transfer data to and from MySQL 5.0 and above, PostgreSQL 8.4 and above, Oracle 10.2 and above, and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and above. The Sqoop 2 repository database is supported only on Derby and PostgreSQL.

Issues Fixed in CDH 5.4.4

Upstream Issues Fixed

The following upstream issues are fixed in CDH 5.4.4:

  • HIVE-10572 - Improve Hive service test to check empty string
  • HIVE-9934 - Vulnerability in LdapAuthenticationProviderImpl enables HiveServer2 client to degrade the authentication mechanism to "none", allowing authentication without password
  • HIVE-10006 - RSC has memory leak while execute multi queries.
  • HUE-2814 - Revert pyopenssl 0.13.1

Published Known Issues Fixed

As a result of the above fixes, the following issues, previously published as Known Issues in CDH 5, are also fixed.

Hue with SSL Fails to Start in CDH 5.4.3

In CDH 5.4.3, Hue with SSL fails to start because a pyOpenSSL package is missing in the parcel. This applies to both new installs and upgrades and is not operating-system specific.

Bug: None

Severity: High

Release affected: CDH 5.4.3

Release containing the fix: CDH 5.4.4

Workaround:

  1. Download the package:
    1. cd /tmp
    2. curl -O https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/p/pyOpenSSL/pyOpenSSL-0.13.tar.gz
  2. Determine the Hue installation directory:
    • Parcels:

      export HUE_DIR=/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.4.3-1.cdh5.4.3.p0.6/lib/hue

    • Packages:

      export HUE_DIR=/usr/lib/hue

  3. Change to the Hue installation directory:

    cd $HUE_DIR

  4. Do the following, depending on your OS:
    • On CentOS/RedHat 6.x:
      1. sudo yum install gcc python-devel openssl-devel
      2. sudo ./build/env/bin/python ./build/env/bin/pip -v install /tmp/pyOpenSSL-0.13.tar.gz
    • On Ubuntu 14.04:
      1. sudo apt-get install gcc python-dev python-pip libssl-dev
      2. sudo pip install --target=`pwd`/`ls -d build/env/lib/python*/site-packages` /tmp/pyOpenSSL-0.13.tar.gz
    • On other platforms, contact Support for assistance.
