Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-5001) [WebHCat] JobState is read/written with different user credentials
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 17:15:51 GMT


Eugene Koifman updated HIVE-5001:

    Priority: Minor  (was: Major)

Lowering priority as this isn't commonly used in production and HIVE-4601 has improved HDFSStorage
error logging so that this condition is at least visible in the logs.

> JobState can be persisted to HDFS or Zookeeper.  At various points in the lifecycle it's
accessed with different user credentials thus may cause errors depending on how permissions
are set.
> Example:
> When submitting a MR job, templeton.JarDelegator is used.
> It calls LauncherDelegator#queueAsUser() which runs TempletonControllerJob with UserGroupInformation.doAs().
> TempletonControllerJob will in turn create JobState and persist it.
> LauncherDelegator.registerJob() also modifies JobState but w/o doing a doAs()
> So in the later case it's possible that the persisted state of JobState by a different
user than one that created/owns the file.
> templeton.tool.HDFSCleanup tries to delete these files w/o doAs.
> 'childid' file, for example, is created with rw-r--r--.
> and it's parent directory (job_201308051224_0001) has rwxr-xr-x.
> HDFSStorage doesn't set file permissions explicitly so it must be using default permissions.
> So there is a potential issue here (depending on UMASK) especially once HIVE-4601 is
> Actually, even w/o HIVE-4601 the user that owns the WebHCat process is likely different
than the one submitting a request.
> The default for is org.apache.hcatalog.templeton.toolHDFSStorage,
but it's likely that most production environments change it to Zookeeper, which may explain
why this issue is not commonly seen.
