Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4513) disable hivehistory logs by default
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 07:54:24 GMT


Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-4513:

This adds the configuration parameter *hive.session.history.enabled* in and
hive-default.xml.template, so it needs to be documented in the wiki here:

* [Hive Configuration Properties |]

> 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.
