Hive Server1 on HDP 1.3.3

  • #45392

    We have a 11 node cluster that runs HDP 1.3.3.
    I’ve installed RHive 0.7 on the cluster and am trying to connect to HiveServer1 .

    The connection does not get established successfully and just freezes. There are no logs generated as well.

    To check if the HIveServer1 is actually running and responding, I used the telnet command.
    The output is as follows:
    [root@manny1 ~]# hive –service hiveserver &
    [1] 25692
    [root@manny1 ~]# Starting Hive Thrift Server

    [root@manny1 ~]# telnet localhost 10000
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is ‘^]’.
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    External clients are unable to connect to the Hive Thrift server (HiveServer1).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated to resolve this issue..

    Thank you,

    Hi Sachin,

    Try to increase the heap size used in HiveServer1 to more than 1G by running the following from command line as hive user:
    export HADOOP_HEAPSIZE=2048 ;
    hive –service hiveserver &
    Hope this helps.
