Troubleshoot the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP

See the following troubleshooting tips if you're running into issues with the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP.

Troubleshoot your environment

To troubleshoot your environment, you can set the field worker_log_level in hydra_node.conf to reflect a new log level for a data collection node. The default log level for a data collection node is INFO. DEBUG will be the most verbose logging level.

  1. On the search head that administers the Distributed Collection Scheduler, create a local version of hydra_node.conf
  2. Edit $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_ontap/local/hydra_node.conf to set the log level of for all data collection nodes as per the following example:
[default]

gateway_port = 8008

capabilities = * 

log_level = DEBUG

Distribute API requests across multiple data collection nodes

Distribute API requests across multiple data collection nodes (DCNs) to improve collection processing speed and to reduce collection fails. See the distribute API requests across multiple data collection nodes section of the configure inputs section of this manual.

Troubleshoot hydra scheduler and hydra worker error logs: ValueError: unsupported pickle protocol: 3

Problem

You receive the following error in the hydra worker logs:

ValueError: unsupported pickle protocol: 3

You receive the following error in the hydra scheduler logs:

ValueError: unsupported pickle protocol: 3

Cause

The add-on is unable to deserialize a Python object that's serialized with a Python version that's different than the version the add-on is running. For example, the add-on is unable to deserialize a Python object that's serialized by Pytho 3, but the add-on is running Python 2.

Resolution

  1. From Collection Configuration page, stop the scheduler.
  2. Stop Splunk on the DCN.
  3. On the DCN, go to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_ontap/local and remove the hydra_metadata.conf file.
  4. Start Splunk on the DCN.
  5. Start Splunk on the Collection Configuration page.
