Subject Hive locking retries
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2012 20:40:44 GMT

I use hive locking and I commonly get this error.

HiveServerException(message:Query returned non-zero code: 10, cause:
FAILED: Error in acquiring locks: locks on the underlying objects
cannot be acquired. retry after some time, errorCode:10,

The default settings for hive are:
  <description>The number of times you want to try to get all the

  <description>The sleep time (in seconds) between various retries</description>

This is not the behaviour I see at all. It seems like hive tries once
and then gives up. What is the deal here?
