Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-251) Failures in Transform don't stop the job
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 00:34:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12680708#action_12680708

Venky Iyer commented on HIVE-251:

I believe this has to do with cases where the (streaming) script reads in all of its input
from stdin and _then_ fails. Scripts that fail before reading in all their input are correctly
marked as having failed.

> If the program executed via a SELECT TRANSFORM() USING 'foo' exits with a non-zero exit
status, Hive proceeds as if nothing bad happened.  The main way that the user knows something
bad has happened is if the user checks the logs (probably because he got no output).  This
is doubly bad if the program only fails part of the time (say, on certain inputs) since the
job will still produce output and thus the problem will likely go undetected.
