hive-testbench. ATSHook not found error

  • #57790
    Ilho Kim

    Installing and testing hive-testbench(
    faced the following error. Is this because of missing configuration or lack of lib?

    – hadoop 2.4
    – Hive 0.13.1

    Comment out these three lines, either by removing them or adding two dashes (–) to the beginning:

    set hive.exec.failure.hooks=org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.hooks.ATSHook;
    set hive.exec.pre.hooks=org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.hooks.ATSHook;

    I will probably remove these lines from the settings file for better compatibility with other Hadoop versions.

    They should be commented out from testbench.settings
