Hello.  

I am running Spark 2.4.4. I have implemented a custom metrics producer. It works well when I run locally, or specify the metrics producer only for the driver.  When I ask for executor metrics I run into ClassNotFoundExceptions

Is it possible to pass a metrics JAR via --jars?  If so what am I missing?

Deploy driver stats via:
--jars hdfs:///custommetricsprovider.jar
--conf spark.metrics.conf.driver.sink.metrics.class=org.apache.spark.mycustommetricssink

However, when I pass the JAR with the metrics provider to executors via:
--jars hdfs:///custommetricsprovider.jar
--conf spark.metrics.conf.executor.sink.metrics.class=org.apache.spark.mycustommetricssink

I get ClassNotFoundException:
