Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-789) Add get_unique_id() call to metastore
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 23:06:59 GMT


Todd Lipcon commented on HIVE-789:

Forgot to mention - this patch is against branch-0.4.0, though it shouldn't be hard to apply
the same thing to trunk. Assuming this seems like a reasonable way to fix the races in HIVE-718
I'll port it to trunk.

> As noted in HIVE-718, it can be tough to avoid race conditions when multiple clients
are trying to move files into the same directory. This patch adds a get_unique_id() call to
the metastore that returns the current value from an incrementing JDO Sequence so that clients
can avoid some races without locks.
