Subject Re: Closing long running hive query forcefully
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 16:12:21 GMT

We solved this problem in the following way (this is really not a simple
- start hive query in a different thread
- we generated an unique id for the query and used the SET key=value;
command (before the long query command) to give this unique id to the MR
jobs related to the query
- main thread waits for the completion or the cancellation sign (comes from
the gui or anywhere else)
- if cancellation sign comes, then we will kill the running query through
the JobTracker
  - list all jobs and search the job which contains the previously
configured unique id
  - kill that job
  - that will cause exception on the query thread

It's a little bit ugly, but thrift doesn't support async communication and
so "statement.cancel()" function can't be supported/implemented.
