    Getting following error when running hive query:

    set start=”2011-01-31 00:00:00″;
    set end=”2011-01-31 23:59:59″;
    select name, type, subq.* from
    ( SELECT
    idaction_url idaction,
    count(distinct idvisit) dis_visit ,
    count(*) subquery_count
    FROM log_link_visit_action_tbl
    WHERE (server_time between unix_timestamp(${hiveconf:start}) and unix_timestamp(${hiveconf:end})
    AND idsite = 5
    AND idaction_url > 0 )
    GROUP BY idaction_url
    ORDER by subquery_count desc limit 10000 ) subq
    join log_action_tbl on (subq.idaction = log_action_tbl.idaction)
    ORDER BY subquery_count DESC ;

    Task ID:

    What does exit code 3 mean, and what needs to be corrected to fix the error.
    Thanks !

    Could you take a look to JobTracker and TaskTracker logs?
    There should be some more details on the problem.

    Thank you!
