I have installed 7 VM instances of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS servers. First instance runs the namenode service and all other 6 nodes run datanode service.I think my NameNode is getting crashed or blocked due to some issue. After rebooting if I check JPS command output my namenode is running. In core-site.xml the fs.defaultfs property is set to hdfs://instance-1:8020. but in the netstat -tulpn output 8020 port is not there.

this is the JPS output right after rebooting.

root@instance-1:~# jps

2517 SecondaryNameNode
3171 JobHistoryServer
2790 EventCatcherService
2842 AlertPublisher

this is the netstat output that I checked after jps.

As I said I don't see 8020 port. After one minute I checked JPS output and the namenode is gone.

this is the jps output one minute after rebooting.

root@instance-1:~# jps
3794 Main
3313 ResourceManager
3907 EventCatcherService

2656 Bootstrap
2877 HeadlampServer
1556 Main
2517 SecondaryNameNode
3171 JobHistoryServer
2842 AlertPublisher
2600 Bootstrap

As I said namenode is not there. I repeated the above process couple of times and everytime I get the same results port 8020 not there and namenode getting crashed. I think it is a firewall issue , what do you think?

Thanks in advance.

You should check the NameNode's daemon log under the $HADOOP_HOME/logs directory first.

As a motivation,

During startup, the NameNode must complete certain actions before it can serve client requests:

  1. Read file system metadata from the fsimage file.
  2. Read edit logs and apply logged operations to the file system metadata.
  3. Write a new checkpoint.
  4. Remain in safe mode until a sufficient number of blocks have been reported by datanodes.
