Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6268) Network resource leak with HiveClientCache when using HCatInputFormat
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2014 18:16:42 GMT


Sushanth Sowmyan commented on HIVE-6268:

Note also, that the default behaviour is to continue to have the cache enabled, so as to not
surprise any users. The new parameter is called "hcatalog.hive.client.cache.disabled", and
would need to be set to "true" by the HCat user to disable the cache.

> HCatInputFormat has a cache feature that allows HCat to cache hive client connections
to the metastore, so as to not keep reinstantiating a new hive server every single time. This
uses a guava cache of hive clients, which only evicts entries from cache on the next write,
or by manually managing the cache.
> So, in a single threaded case, where we reuse the hive client, the cache works well,
but in a massively multithreaded case, where each thread might perform one action, and then
is never used, there are no more writes to the cache, and all the clients stay alive, thus
keeping ports open.
