Why am I seeing this error?


"echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message

    This problem occurs when there is an imbalance in processing power. In Vertica, the memory and processing power (CPU) may be too high and the disk throughput may be comparatively too low to keep up. All Vertica nodes must have an appropriate balance of CPU, RAM, disk throughput and network bandwidth.


    To avoid this problem, you need to tune the vm.dirty_ratio and vm.dirty_background_ratio parameters in Linux. In addition, you need to set hung_task_panic to 0.


    For details, see Tuning Linux Dirty Data Parameters for Vertica in the Vertica Knowledge Base in the Developer Community.
