Subject Re: Big Lock in Driver.compileInternal
Date Fri, 29 May 2015 01:54:20 GMT
Glad to know it.
I have tested it yesterday on a 7 nodes cluster, with 100 concurrent clients running for about
8 hours and haven't seen any issue.
The workload is TPC-H style with both DDLs and queries. The 100 clients use different tables
from each other and use different sessions.
My Hive version is 0.13.1.And the changing part is the removal of the big lock.
Hope this test helps.

Hi. As luck would have it, we are currently looking at this issue :) I have a small patch
up at; I tested it a bit w/a unit test and
some manual cluster testing. Would you be willing to test it on your setup?
