    Hi Anupam,

    Do you run datanode process on your master node? If yes, I recommend cleaning any unneeded temporary Hive data in HDFS. You can run hadoop fs -ls /tmp and see if you find any data that you don’t need. Additionally you can try dropping Hive tables that you don’t need, or add space to your DataNodes.

    Hope this helps,
