SQL Server table to Hive table using Sqoop

[ Edited ]

sqoop import --connect 'jdbc:sqlserver://;database=KUDU_40M' \
--username xxxx --password xxxx --driver \
--table dim_PatientEncounter --hive-table kudu_40m.dim_PatientEncounter --create-hive-table --hive-import --warehouse-dir /user/hive/warehouse/testdb -m 4


The table has 30 million+ rows.


Running the above command, always seems to hang at mapper 3 of 4. Nothing much in the logs besides:

2018-05-01 08:22:53,364 INFO [IPC Server handler 7 on 45249] org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskAttemptListenerImpl: Progress of TaskAttempt attempt_1525122694968_0001_m_000003_0 is : 0.0


Changes I made: = 5 GB

mapreduce.reduce.memory.mb = 5GB

yarn.nodemanager.resource.memory-mb = 20GB (NodeManager Default Group)

yarn.nodemanager.resource.memory-mb = 8GB (NodeManager Group 1)

Any help is appreciated? Also, this is in CDH 5.14, so Sqoop1 is being used by default, I believe. Where are the Sqoop logs written for this, I cannot seem to find the logs besides the Yarn logs.

Re: SQL Server table to Hive table using Sqoop

You are using sqoop1.

Sqoop1 is not a service, it is a tool, that submits the job to YARN.

So, apart from your stdout and YARN logs, there are no sqoop logs.


Number of mappers (-m 4) means that your job will open 4 connections to your database. If there is no indication in logs about out of memory or illegal value on a column (I mean yarn logs), then you should check that your DB can accept 4 concurrent connections.
