Subject [jira] [Created] (TEZ-2034) Hive CLI hangs while waiting for a container
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 19:49:35 GMT

             Summary: Hive CLI hangs while waiting for a container
                 Key: TEZ-2034
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TEZ-2034
             Project: Apache Tez
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Rich Haase

The Hive CLI, with Tez set as the execution engine, hangs if a container cannot be immediately
be allocated as the Tez application master.  From a user perspective this behavior is broken.

Users should be able to start a CLI and execute hive metadata commands without needing a Tez
application master.  Since users are accustomed to queries with Hive on MapReduce taking a
long time, but access to the CLI being near instantaneous, the correct behavior should be
to wait for a query to be run before starting the Tez application master.

This behavior is avoided with the Beeline CLI since it connects through HiveServer2, however
many users are accustomed to using the Hive CLI and should not be penalized for their choice
until the Hive CLI is completely deprecated.
