Unable to run Hive Queries in HDP2.0 with Tez

  • #27828

    I installed and configured Tez to run Hive queries according to the guideline provided in
    The AMPoolService and the LazyMRAppMasters started alright. When I submitted a simple Hive query (eg. select count(*) from smalltab_txt;) it fails with an exception.

    hive (default)> select count(*) from smalltab_txt;
    Total MapReduce jobs = 1
    Launching Job 1 out of 1
    Number of reduce tasks determined at compile time: 1
    In order to change the average load for a reducer (in bytes):
    set hive.exec.reducers.bytes.per.reducer=
    In order to limit the maximum number of reducers:
    set hive.exec.reducers.max=
    In order to set a constant number of reducers:
    set mapred.reduce.tasks=
    Starting Job = job_1371670413951_0012, Tracking URL = http:///proxy/application_1371670413951_0012/
    Kill Command = //hadoop- job -kill job_1371670413951_0012

    Ended Job = job_1371670413951_0012 with exception ‘’

    The query however completes properly if I don’t configure Tez to execute the query (plain YARN+MR).

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Saurabh,

    Thanks for trying out HDP 2.0. We are looking into your issue and will get back to you as soon as we have an answer.



    Hi Ted,
    Any update on this issue. If you need any configuration details etc. please let me know. I feel it is a basic issue that a simple query itself is failing.

    Hi, Ted,
    Any update on this one? I plan to try the Hive 0.11 + ORC + Tec in HDP 2.0. Wondering if the issue is a configuration issue.
