Ozone provides multiple tools to get more information about the current state of the cluster.


Ozone has native Prometheus. Each internal metrics (collected by Hadoop metrics framework) published under the /prom HTTP context. (For example under http://localhost:9876/prom for SCM).

The Prometheus endpoint is turned on by default but can be turned off by the hdds.prometheus.endpoint.enabled configuration variable.

In a secure environment the page is guarded with SPNEGO authentication which is not supported by Prometheus. To enable monitoring in a secure environment a specific authentication token cen be configured

Example ozone-site.xml:


Example prometheus configuration:

  - job_name: ozone
    bearer_token: <putyourtokenhere>
    metrics_path: /prom
     - targets:
         - "" 

Distributed tracing

Distributed tracing can help to understand performance bottleneck with visualizing end-to-end performance.

Ozone uses jaeger tracing library to collect traces which can send tracing data to any compatible backend (Zipkin, …).

Tracing is turned off by default, but can be turned on with hdds.tracing.enabled from ozone-site.xml


Jager client can be configured with environment variables as documented here:

For example:


This configuration will record 1% of the requests to limit the performance overhead. For more information about jaeger sampling check the documentation

ozone insight

Ozone insight is a swiss-army-knife tool to for checking the current state of Ozone cluster. It can show logging, metrics and configuration for a particular component.

To check the available components use ozone insight list:

> ozone insight list

Available insight points:

  scm.node-manager                     SCM Datanode management related information.
  scm.replica-manager                  SCM closed container replication manager
  scm.event-queue                      Information about the internal async event delivery
  scm.protocol.block-location          SCM Block location protocol endpoint
  scm.protocol.container-location      SCM Container location protocol endpoint
  scm.protocol.security                SCM Block location protocol endpoint
  om.key-manager                       OM Key Manager
  om.protocol.client                   Ozone Manager RPC endpoint
  datanode.pipeline                    More information about one ratis datanode ring.


ozone insight config can show configuration related to a specific component (supported only for selected components).

> ozone insight config scm.replica-manager

Configuration for `scm.replica-manager` (SCM closed container replication manager)

>>> hdds.scm.replication.thread.interval
       default: 300s
       current: 300s

There is a replication monitor thread running inside SCM which takes care of replicating the containers in the cluster. This property is used to configure the interval in which that thread runs.

>>> hdds.scm.replication.event.timeout
       default: 30m
       current: 30m

Timeout for the container replication/deletion commands sent  to datanodes. After this timeout the command will be retried.


ozone insight metrics can show metrics related to a specific component (supported only for selected components).

> ozone insight metrics scm.protocol.block-location
Metrics for `scm.protocol.block-location` (SCM Block location protocol endpoint)

ozone insight logs can connect to the required service and show the DEBUG/TRACE log related to one specific component. For example to display RPC message:

>ozone insight logs om.protocol.client

[OM] 2020-07-28 12:31:49,988 [DEBUG|org.apache.hadoop.ozone.protocolPB.OzoneManagerProtocolServerSideTranslatorPB|OzoneProtocolMessageDispatcher] OzoneProtocol ServiceList request is received
[OM] 2020-07-28 12:31:50,095 [DEBUG|org.apache.hadoop.ozone.protocolPB.OzoneManagerProtocolServerSideTranslatorPB|OzoneProtocolMessageDispatcher] OzoneProtocol CreateVolume request is received

Using -v flag the content of the protobuf message can also be displayed (TRACE level log):

ozone insight logs -v om.protocol.client
