SmartSense bundles include configuration, and metrics, and bundles used for Support Case troubleshooting included configuration, metrics, and log files. This data is captured for the Operating System of cluster nodes, as well as for all of the installed HDP services.
The capture process can be configured to exclude specific files from capture, or specific Hadoop properties within HDP configuration files. In order to provide protection to organization-specific data, such as customer ID’s, patient ID’s, Credit Card #’s, etc. We provide the capability to specify a regular expression that can be removed or replaced in any file that is captured by SmartSense. This allows protection of sensitive data in the event that data is unintentionally leaked into log files.
By default we remove all properties associated with clear text passwords. Ambari, Hive, and Oozie by default store DB credentials as cleartext, unless they’ve been configured to encrypt them. Just in case Hadoop Operators have not taken the time to do so, we exclude those properties by default.
