Subject Re: Beeline throws OOM on large input query
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 13:53:44 GMT
hmmm.  so beeline blew up *before* the query was even submitted to the
execution engine?   one would think 16G would be plenty 8M row sql

some suggestions if you feel like going further down the rabbit hole.

1.  confirm your beeline java process is indeed running with expanded
memory (ps -ef | grep beeline and look for the last Xmx setting on the line)

2.  try the hive-cli (or the python one even.)  or "beeline -u
jdbc:hive2://" (local beeline - maybe thats different)

3.  chop down your 6K points to 3K or something smaller to see just where
the breaking point is.  does 1K points even work?  ie. determine how close
to edge are you?


PS. i had never heard of a "theta" join before so a searched it and found
this:  and
this: (looks like this came

and still in "open" status i see. well you're not alone if that's any

maybe ping that Jira and see if Edward or Brock (or others) have any new
news on the topic as supporting theta joins sounds like the proper solution
to this whole rigamarole you find yourself in.
