-Re: Hive parallel execution deadlocks, need restart of yarn-nodemanager
You mentioned you only have one NodeManager.
So, is hive generating 3 MapReduce jobs? And how many map and reduce tasks for each job?
What is your yarn.nodemanager.resource.memory-mb? That determines the maximum number of containers you can run.
You are running into an issue where all the jobs are running in parallel, and because job now has one 'ApplicationMaster' which also occupies a container, the jobs are getting into a scheduling livelock. On single node you will not have enough capacity to run many jobs in parallel.

If i restart hadoop-yarn-nodemanager on the nodemanager server, Hive gets out of its deadlock and continues, until getting deadlocked a bit later again.
