Is not due to memory allocation. I found that I am able to perform que query ok, if I rewrite it as:

select a.user_agent from (SELECT device.user_agent as user_agent FROM sometable WHERE ds >= '2016-03-30 00' AND ds <= '2016-03-30 01')a where a.user_agent LIKE 'Mozilla%'  LIMIT 1;

I see the amount of mappers and execution time is almost the same, but this way we are able to execute ok and get the results.
Any ideas why may this happen?

What are you memory allocations set to?  When using something as expensive as LIKE and a date range together, I often have to increase my standard memory allocation. 

Try changing your memory allocation settings to:
Key: mapreduce.map.memory.mb Value: 2048 and Key: mapreduce.map.java.opts Value: -Xmx1500m

In HUE, this is the settings tab and you enter them manually.  I’m unsure about command line.

Subject: Query fails if condition placed on Parquet struct field


We are running queries on Hive against parquet files.
In the schema definition, we have a parquet struct called device with a string field user_agent.

If we run query from Example 1, it returns results as expected.
If we run query from Example 2, execution fails and exits with error.

Did anyone face a similar case?


Example 1:
SELECT device.user_agent FROM sometable WHERE ds >= '2016-03-30 00' AND ds <= '2016-03-30 01' LIMIT 1;

Example 2:
SELECT device.user_agent FROM sometable WHERE ds >= '2016-03-30 00' AND ds <= '2016-03-30 01' AND device.user_agent LIKE 'Mozilla%'  LIMIT 1;

The error and trace we get is:

Exception from container-launch.
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 2 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.mr.MapRedTask
Container exited with a non-zero exit code 1
