Subject PutHDFS and inconsistent snappy native lib loading
Date Tue, 20 Jun 2017 13:20:25 GMT
I have a flow running on 3 nodes (Nifi 1.3 on Redhat 7) that forks into two branches that terminate
with two PutHDFS that both write to the same Hadoop cluster.  I’m trying to use Snappy compression
for both of the PutHDFS.  The thing is, one of them works fine, and the other throws “native
snappy library not available”. The behavior is the same across all nodes of the cluster.
 I have no idea how this is possible though—either the JVM has access to the libraries—or
it doesn’t… or so I thought :-/  

Things I’ve looked at/tried:
Running hadoop checknative –a shows that the snappy native library is indeed installed.
 If I run a hadoop command with debug on, I can see that the native libs load correctly. 
For Nifi, I can see from this warning in the logs that they are not loading correctly:

2017-06-19 17:39:10,553 WARN [StandardProcessScheduler Thread-5] org.apache.hadoop.util.NativeCodeLoader
Unable to load native-hadoop library for your platform... using builtin-java classes where

But I’ve checked and I am using the exact same -Djava.library.path with Nifi as the hadoop
command ($HADOOP_HOME/lib/native).

Other things I’ve tried:
Setting JAVA_LIBRARY_PATH in bin/
Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH in bin/
Copying the .so file into ./jre/lib of the java install

Here’s the error that the problematic PutHDFS outputs (it writes a 0 byte file when it does
2017-06-19 11:59:54,764 ERROR [Timer-Driven Process Thread-7] o.apache.nifi.processors.hadoop.PutHDFS

native snappy library not available: this version of libhadoop was built without snappy support.:

Any idea what I need to do here?
