    Description

      A recent commit upgraded GPerfTools to version 2.6.3. Apparently, this mysteriously caused Impala to fail to start on certain platforms (e.g. Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.9). There is no core file or anything found when this failed.

      $ /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.15.0-1.cdh5.15.0.p0.176/lib/impala/sbin-retail/impalad
      Segmentation fault
      $ strace /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.15.0-1.cdh5.15.0.p0.176/lib/impala/sbin-retail/impalad
      execve("/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.15.0-1.cdh5.15.0.p0.176/lib/impala/sbin-retail/impalad", ["/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.15.0"...], [/* 23 vars */]) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)
      --- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SI_KERNEL, si_addr=0} ---
      +++ killed by SIGSEGV +++
      Segmentation fault
      

      It was verified that downgrading GPerfTools to previous version (2.5) made the problem go away.
