SPECvirt ® Datacenter 2021 Technical Support¶
For problems deploying clients, check the following.
Ensure that the svdc-template’s and svdc-director’s virtual NIC has assigned the correct MAC address. Check the svdc-template’s
eth0vNIC settings to ensure that the MAC prefix (the first three octets) assigned to the vNIC matches the value for
MACAddressPrefixthat you set in Control.config for the testbed network. The default for svdc-template is
42:44:49:00:00:00. The default for svdc-director is
Ensure that the svdc-director’s virtual NIC has assigned the correct IP address. Check that the svdc-director’s IP address uses the value of
0.2. The default IP address for the svdc-director is
Use ping to make sure that the svdc-director can contact the management server.
If you encounter problems during the collection of the support tarball archive at the end of a measurement, you can rerun
The support archive is valid as long as you haven’t made changes to the testbed.
HammerDB creation during prepSUT.sh takes a long time and appears to hang. CPU utilization on the svdc-director is idle, and the console output reads:
... ALL VIRTUAL USERS COMPLETE hammerdb>DB load successful. Creating DB backup. **Note, this takes several minutes (or more). Please be patient...
This pause occurs as the harness backs up the HammerDB database on the svdc-director and could take several hours.
To monitor active HammerDB transactions during a measurement:
To access the BigBench web console and monitor transaction job history:
http://svdc-txxx-bbnn:19888/jobhistory/app - shows history of 38 jobs completed during initial load as well as all past jobs http://svdc-txxx-bbnn:8088/cluster/apps - monitor active BigBench jobs http://svdc-txxx-bbnn:8088/cluster/nodes - monitor BigBench data node status
To check the status of BigBench services:
ssh svdc-txxx-bbnn "/opt/createApacheCluster/checkHadoopStatus.sh"
