Hi Lefty,
Never mind. The M-R jobs were stuck due to a Tez configuration issue.
I am now able to see the job output in the specified directory.

Subject: Hive WebHcat Usage

Hi Lefty,
I was using the documentation (
created by you to execute Hive queries using WebHcat REST API.

Below is the CURL call which I am using to execute the query:

curl -s -d execute="desc + tpcds_bin_partitioned_orc_100 + . + catalog_page" -d statusdir=“output"

I get the JOB ID in the request result


I tried other simple queries(like select * from tableName) as well. But unlike the example
described in the documentation, I am not getting any results in the HDFS directory

hadoop fs –cat output/stdout

hadoop fs –cat output/stderr

doesn’t contain anything.

Do you have any comments on what might be the issue.

Thanks in advance
