Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4513) disable hivehistory logs by default
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2013 06:50:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-4513?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13737922#comment-13737922

Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-4513:
-------------------------------------

[~thiruvel] Thanks for the feedback and pointers to the duplicate jiras. Yes, I think it is
better to address thread safety issue in another jira, as it is not a regression introduced
by this patch, the issue was there when the function was in HiveHistory.java (but I should
have noticed the bug!)

> HiveHistory log files (hive_job_log_hive_*.txt files) store information about hive query
such as query string, plan , counters and MR job progress information.
> There is no mechanism to delete these files and as a result they get accumulated over
time, using up lot of disk space. 
> I don't think this is used by most people, so I think it would better to turn this off
by default. Jobtracker logs already capture most of this information, though it is not as
structured as history logs.
