Two things generally cause this.

1) The Java task does not have sufficient java heap. It pauses often and
because the JVM is paused it does not report status

2) a process like streaming or potentially a UDTF is creating many tuples
or taking a long time to produce a single tuple/row

Hive has some settings that control this. You can simply ignore the
timeouts and let the process continue indefinitely,  But there is no direct
way for a user to "signal progress" like in map reduce. (If streaming you
can send progress)
