Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7342) support hiveserver2,metastore specific config files
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 18:14:05 GMT


Jason Dere commented on HIVE-7342:

Just trying to understand which apps will load which configs:

- HiveCLI, remote metastore: hive-site
- HiveCLI, embedded metastore: hive-site, metastore-site
- Beeline, embedded mode: hive-site, hiveserver2-site, metastore-site (if embedded metastore)
- Beeline, remote mode: ?
- Metastore Server: hive-site, metastore-site
- HiveServer2, remote metastore (I've heard this is not a recommended configuration?): hive-site,
- HiveServer2, embedded metastore: hive-site, metastore-site, hiveserver2-site

> There is currently a single configuration file for all components in hive. ie, components
such as hive cli, hiveserver2 and metastore all read from the same hive-site.xml. 
> It will be useful to have a server specific hive-site.xml, so that you can have some
different configuration value set for a server. For example, you might want to enabled authorization
checks for hiveserver2, while disabling the checks for hive cli. The workaround today is to
add any component specific configuration as a commandline (-hiveconf) argument.
> Using server specific config files (eg hiveserver2-site.xml, metastore-site.xml) that
override the entries in hive-site.xml will make the configuration much more easy to manage.
