Reconnect to HS2 Session

Clients can disconnect from Impala while keeping the HiveSever2 (HS2) session running and can also reconnect to the same session by presenting the session_token.

New Default Behavior

By default, disconnected sessions are terminated after 15 min.

  • Clients will not notice a difference because of this behavioral change.
  • If clients are disconnected without the driver explicitly closing the session (for example, because of a network fault), disconnected sessions and the queries associated with them may remain open and continue consuming resources until the disconnected session is timed out. Administrators may notice these disconnected sessions and/or the associated resource consumption.

Steps to switch to the CDH behavior:

You can adjust the --disconnected_session_timeout flag to a lower value so that disconnected sessions are cleaned up quickly.
