Troubleshoot clusters

An EMR cluster runs in a complex ecosystem that comprises open-source software, custom application code, and Amazon Web Services.

The following topics can help you identify cluster issues and how to fix them.

When you are developing a new Hadoop application, we recommend that you enable debugging and process a small but representative subset of your data to test the application. You may also want to run the application step-by-step to test each step separately. For more information, see Configure cluster logging and debugging and Step 5: Test the cluster step by step.
