-unbalanced transaction calls
James Warren 2013-02-05, 20:21
As part of our daily workflow, we're running a few hundred hive
queries that are coordinated through oozie. Recently we're
encountering issues where on average a job or two fails - and never
the same query. The observed error is:
FAILED: Error in metadata: java.lang.RuntimeException:
commitTransaction was called but openTransactionCalls = 0. This
probably indicates that there are unbalanced calls to
which I've seen was referred to in HIVE-1760 but patched in 0.7.
We're running Hive 0.9 (from CDH 4.1 - will redirect to the Cloudera
lists if that is a more appropriate form) - any ideas / suggestions
where I should start looking?
