DataStax Enterprise 4.5

Configuring firewall port access

If you have a firewall running on the nodes in your Cassandra or DataStax Enterprise cluster, you must open up the following ports to allow communication between the nodes, including certain Cassandra ports. If this isn't done, when you start Cassandra (or Hadoop in DataStax Enterprise) on a node, the node will act as a standalone database server rather than joining the database cluster.

Procedure

Open the following ports:
Port Description Configurable in

Public Facing Ports

22 SSH (default) See your OS documentation on sshd.
DataStax Enterprise public ports
4040 Spark application web site port.  
7080 Spark Master web site port. spark-env.sh
7081 Spark Worker web site port. spark-env.sh
8012 Hadoop Job Tracker client port. The Job Tracker listens on this port for job submissions and communications from task trackers; allows traffic from each Analytics node in a cluster. cassandra.yaml

See Setting the job tracker node.

8983 Solr port and Demo applications web site port (Portfolio, Search, Search log, Weather Sensors)  
50030 Hadoop Job Tracker web site port. The Job Tracker listens on this port for HTTP requests. If initiated from the OpsCenter, these requests are proxied through the opscenterd daemon; otherwise, they come directly from the browser. [1] mapred-site.xml using the mapred.job.tracker.http.address property.
50060 Hadoop Task Tracker web site port. Each Task Tracker listens on this port for HTTP requests coming directly from the browser and not proxied by the opscenterd daemon. [1] mapred-site.xml using the mapred.task.tracker.http.address property.
OpsCenter public ports
8888 OpsCenter web site port. The opscenterd daemon listens on this port for HTTP requests coming directly from the browser. [1] opscenterd.conf

Inter-node Ports

Cassandra inter-node ports
1024 - 65355 JMX reconnection/loopback ports. Please read the description for port 7199.  
7000 Cassandra inter-node cluster communication port. cassandra.yaml

See storage_port.

7001 Cassandra SSL inter-node cluster communication port. cassandra.yaml

See ssl_storage_port.

7199 Cassandra JMX monitoring port. cassandra-env.sh

See JMX options in Tuning Java resources.

9160 Cassandra client port (Thrift) port. OpsCenter agents makes Thrift requests to their local node on this port. Additionally, the port can be used by the opscenterd daemon to make Thrift requests to each node in the cluster. cassandra.yaml

See rpc_port.

DataStax Enterprise inter-node ports
7077 Spark Master inter-node communication port. dse.yaml
8984 Solr inter-node communication port. dse.yaml

See Shard transport options for DSE Search/Solr communications.

9042 CQL native clients port. cassandra.yaml

See native_transport_port.

9290 Hadoop Job Tracker Thrift port. The Job Tracker listens on this port for Thrift requests coming from the opscenterd daemon.  
10000 Hive server port.
Note: Use a different port if you run the Hive server and Shark server at the same time.
Set with the -p option in the dse hive --service hiveserver -p port command or configure in hive-site.xml.
10000 Shark server port. Set with the -p option in the dse shark --service sharkserver -p port command.
OpsCenter specific inter-node  
50031 OpsCenter HTTP proxy for Job Tracker port. The opscenterd daemon listens on this port for incoming HTTP requests from the browser when viewing the Hadoop Job Tracker page directly. [1]  
61620 OpsCenter monitoring port. The opscenterd daemon listens on this port for TCP traffic coming from the agent. [1]  
61621 OpsCenter agent port. The agents listen on this port for SSL traffic initiated by OpsCenter. [1]  

[1] See OpsCenter and DataStax agent ports.
