Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6137) Hive should report that the file/path doesn’t exist when it doesn’t (it now reports SocketTimeoutException)
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 01:49:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6137?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13878139#comment-13878139

Hari Sankar Sivarama Subramaniyan commented on HIVE-6137:
---------------------------------------------------------

[~thejas] No. It can happen because of broken connectivity issues as well. I think the point
here is that we need not expose the thrift exception to the end-user while running from a
CLI. For debugging purpose, we should log the thrift exception. The end-user should just know
that Hive encountered an exception while trying to locate the data file. Probably, I should
improve the error message by mentioning that "Error while trying to access the data file :
" based on TTransportException instead of throwing a FileNotFound exception.

> Hive should report that the file/path doesn’t exist when it doesn’t (it now reports
SocketTimeoutException):
> Execute a Hive DDL query with a reference to a non-existent blob (such as CREATE EXTERNAL
TABLE...) and check Hive logs (stderr):
> FAILED: Error in metadata: org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException: java.net.SocketTimeoutException:
Read timed out
> FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask
> This error message is not intuitive. If a file doesn't exist, Hive should report FileNotFoundException
