Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-9642) Hive metastore client retries don't happen consistently for all api calls
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2015 23:46:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-9642?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14337492#comment-14337492
] 

Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-9642:
-------------------------------------

The interface IMetaStoreClient that HiveMetaStoreClient implements does throw TException.

It would require changes only in few places. Probably just one file - SessionHiveMetaStoreClient.java,
and maybe some places in hcatalog. But there is already one patch (HIVE-9582) that changes
that.

> When org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException is thrown for issues like socket
timeout, the retry via RetryingMetaStoreClient happens only in certain cases.
> Retry happens for the getDatabase call in but not for getAllDatabases().
> The reason is RetryingMetaStoreClient checks for TTransportException being the cause
for InvocationTargetException. But in case of some calls such as getAllDatabases in HiveMetastoreClient,
all exceptions get wrapped in a MetaException. We should remove this unnecessary wrapping
of exceptions for certain functions in HMC.
