Subject Re: Concurrency support of Apache Hive for streaming data ingest at 7K RPS into multiple tables
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2016 11:55:30 GMT
Another option which you have is to use the Storm HDFS bolt to stream data
into Hive external tables. The external tables then get loaded into ORC
history tables for long term storage. We use this in a HDP cluster with
similar load so I know it works. :)

I'm with Jörn on this one. My impression of hive transactions is that it is
a new feature not totally ready for production.
