[CSO] How to verify Zookeeper status



Article ID: KB34625 KB Last Updated: 25 Jun 2019Version: 2.0

This article provides the instructions for verifying zookeeper status in CSO (Contrail Service Orchestration).


The component health checkup in CSO reports zookeeper as unhealthy (snippet as below). How do I check the status of zookeeper?

INFO Health Check for Infrastructure Component ZooKeeper Started
INFO Attempt: 1 - Retrying Health Check for Component ZooKeeper
INFO Attempt: 2 - Retrying Health Check for Component ZooKeeper
ERROR The Infra Component : ZooKeeper is Unhealthy

The "service zookeeper status" may show as zookeeper status running, but CSO component health checkup script will show status as unhealthy as it uses to fetch the status.

  1. Zookeeper process runs on infra VM's. CSO Process can be checked in infra VM's using the command: '/usr/share/zookeeper/bin/ status'

    # /usr/share/zookeeper/bin/ status
    JMX enabled by default
    Using config: /etc/zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg
    Mode: leader

    Note: Mode in above command can be standalone ( in case of all in one server) or leader and follower ( in case of HA setup)
    In case of HA, zookeeper run as leader in one infra node and follower in rest of the nodes.

  2. To start the zookeeper service use command: /usr/share/zookeeper/bin/ start

  3. To check whether process is running: ps -ef | grep zookeeper

  4. Errorlogs can be checked in Infra nodes: /var/log/zookeeper/zookeeper.log

    Successful start of follower zookeeper log message:

  5. Check the free memory: free -mh

    Zookeeper, Cassandra, Arango db and elasticsearch share the same JDM, so if one process uses more memory, there is possibility of other process running out of memory.
    Such issues can be resolved by restarting the process consuming more memory.

    Out of memory message:

    + /usr/bin/java -Dzookeeper.log.dir=/var/log/zookeeper -Dzookeeper.root.logger=INFO,ROLLINGFILE -cp /etc/zookeeper/conf:/usr/share/java/jline.jar:/usr/share/java/log4j-1.2.jar:/usr/share/java/xercesImpl.jar:/usr/share/java/xmlParserAPIs.jar:/usr/share/java/netty.jar:/usr/share/java/slf4j-api.jar:/usr/share/java/slf4j-log4j12.jar:/usr/share/java/zookeeper.jar org.apache.zookeeper.client.FourLetterWordMain localhost 2181
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: INFO: os::commit_memory(0x00000003d1400000, 704643072, 0) failed; error='Cannot allocate memory' (errno=12)
  6. Check which process is using more memory using the command: top ( shift m)

  7. Check the output of the following command to find out zk_followers and zk_synced_followers :

    echo mntr | nc <leader ip> 2181
    # echo mntr | nc <leader ip> 2181
    zk_version    3.4.5--1, built on 06/10/2013 17:26 GMT
    zk_avg_latency    0
    zk_max_latency    245
    zk_min_latency    0
    zk_packets_received    56220060
    zk_packets_sent    56220162
    zk_num_alive_connections    51
    zk_outstanding_requests    0
    zk_server_state    leader ( state will be standalone in case of non-HA)
    zk_znode_count    467
    zk_watch_count    6
    zk_ephemerals_count    5
    zk_approximate_data_size    44299
    zk_open_file_descriptor_count    97
    zk_max_file_descriptor_count    8192
    zk_followers    2
    zk_synced_followers    2
    zk_pending_syncs    0

    The output above is captured from HA setup where there is one leader and two followers.

    zk_followers and zk_synced_followers as 2 in the output aboe is indicating that leader node has 2 followers and both are in sync. (Good status)

    In case of standalone only zk_server_state as standalone will be visible.
