Subject [jira] Created: (HIVE-1588) Allowing Hive's metastore when it runs as a thrift service to run as a pure metadata service and not perform any filesystem operations

Allowing Hive's metastore when it runs as a thrift service to run as a pure metadata service
and not perform any filesystem operations
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HIVE-1588
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1588
             Project: Hadoop Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Metastore
            Reporter: Sushanth Sowmyan


To integrate with Secure Hadoop, filesystem accesses would require an auth token, which has
an expiry. Thus, if we were running hive with a thrift metastore server, the server process
would need to frequently renew tokens.

One potential way of dealing with that is to have the metastore server be a pure metadata
service, and not perform any filesystem operations, which is taking the approach HIVE-1476
takes a step further, extending it for reads as well as writes.
