> The metastore is caching values, like table names and locations too aggressively, leading
to inconsistencies across Hive clients and metastore Thrift servers.
> For example, open two Hive clients, in each call
> DESCRIBE FORMATTED table_foo;
> Then in one of those clients, execute
> ALTER TABLE table_foo RENAME TO table_bar;
> Then in both clients call
> DESCRIBE FORMATTED table_bar;
> In the client that executed the alter command, the location is correct, however, in the
other Hive client, it will still show the original location of table_foo.
> A similar experiment can be done using metastore Thrift servers, substituting get_table
for DESCRIBE FORMATTED and alter_table for ALTER TABLE ... RENAME TO.
> On the Thrift server you can see that the one which did not execute the alter command,
not only returns the wrong location, despite calling get_table('table_bar') it will return
a table that still has the name table_foo.
