Subject how to control hive log location on 0.13?
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2014 18:28:13 GMT
we just moved to hadoop2.0 (HDP2.1 distro). it turns out that the new hive
version generates a lot of logs into /tmp/ and is quickly creating the
danger of running out of our /tmp/ space.


I see these 2 different logs :

[myuser@mybox ~]$  ls -lt /tmp/myuser/
total 1988
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myuser myuser  191687 2014-07-17 11:17 hive.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myuser myuser   14472 2014-07-16 14:43
myuser_20140716143232_d76043ed-1c4b-42a0-bf0a-2816377a6a2a.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myuser myuser   14260 2014-07-16 14:04
myuser_20140716135353_de698da0-807f-4e3b-8b97-5af5064b55f2.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myuser myuser   14254 2014-07-16 13:42
myuser_20140716133838_208329bd-77bb-4981-a2e9-e747647d0704.log



from the doc at
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/GettingStarted#GettingStarted-ErrorLogs
I can see that "per Hive session basis in /tmp/<user.name>/, but can be
configured in hive-site.xml
<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/AdminManual+Configuration>
with
the hive.querylog.location property.",
but I tried to pass it to -hiveconf hive.querylog.location=/tmp/mycustomlogdir/
 , doesn't seem to work; the hive.log location is not changed by this
approach either.

so how can I change the location of both the logs , by some per-script
params ? (i.e. we can't afford to change the system hive-site.xml or
/etc/hive/conf etc)

Thanks a lot
Yang
