thanks Ed. And on a separate tact lets look at Hiveserver2.

*I've tried to look around on how i can change the thrift heap size but
haven't found anything.*
looking at my hiveserver2 i find this:

   $ ps -ef | grep -i hiveserver2
   dwr       9824 20479  0 12:11 pts/1    00:00:00 grep -i hiveserver2
   dwr      28410     1  0 00:05 ?        00:01:04
-Dhadoop.policy.file=hadoop-policy.xml,NullAppender org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar

   1. what is the output of "ps -ef | grep -i hiveserver2" on your system?
in particular what is the value of -Xmx ?

   2. can you restart your hiveserver with -Xmx1g? or some value that makes
sense to your system?

Lots of questions now.  we await your answers! :)
