Known Issues in Apache Hive

Learn about the known issues in Hive, the impact or changes to the functionality, and the workaround.

CDPD-60418: Hive beeline queries are failing with a org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException error
When running Hive beeline queries on a custom Data Engineering Data Hub cluster on a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environment with Ranger Authorization Service (RAZ), the queries failed. It was noticed that the cluster has multiple connection failures from HiveServer (HS2) to dependent services.

On further analysis, it was observed that the issue is related to the parameter that was provided in the custom cluster template configuration. OpenSSL is not supported for RAZ on a GCP environment.

  1. In Cloudera Manager of the custom DE Data Hub cluster, go to Clusters > Hive Metastore > Configuration
  2. Search for Hive Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hive-site.xml and remove the parameter.
  3. Restart the Hive Metastore service.
CDPD-15518: ACID tables you write using the Hive Warehouse Connector cannot be read from an Impala virtual warehouse.
Read the tables from a Hive virtual warehouse or using Impala queries in Data Hub.
CDPD-13636: Hive job fails with OutOfMemory exception in the Azure DE cluster
Set the parameter hive.optimize.sort.dynamic.partition.threshold=0. Add this parameter in Cloudera Manager (Hive Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hive-site.xml)
ENGESC-2214: Hiveserver2 and HMS service logs are not deleted
Update Hive log4j configurations. Hive -> Configuration -> HiveServer2 Logging Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) Hive Metastore -> Configuration -> Hive Metastore Server Logging Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) Add the following to the configurations: appender.DRFA.strategy.action.type=DELETE appender.DRFA.strategy.action.basepath=${log.dir} appender.DRFA.strategy.action.maxdepth=1 appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.glob=${log.file}.* appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.type=IfFileName appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.nestedConditions.type=IfAccumulatedFileCount appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.nestedConditions.exceeds=same value as appender.DRFA.strategy.max
CDPD-10848: HiveServer Web UI displays incorrect data
If you enabled auto-TLS for TLS encryption, the HiveServer2 Web UI does not display the correct data in the following tables: Active Sessions, Open Queries, Last Max n Closed Queries
CDPD-11890: Hive on Tez cannot run certain queries on tables stored in encryption zones
This problem occurs when the Hadoop Key Management Server (KMS) connection is SSL-encrypted and a self signed certificate is used. SSLHandshakeException might appear in Hive logs.
Use one of the workarounds:
  • Install a self signed SSL certificate into cacerts file on all hosts.
  • Copy ssl-client.xml to a directory that is available in all hosts. In Cloudera Manager, in Clusters > Hive on Tez > Configuration. In Hive Service Advanced Configuration Snippet for hive-site.xml, click +, and add the name tez.aux.uris and valuepath-to-ssl-client.xml.
