Impalad logs diskspace full



im working on a poc where we store files int a HBase table using Impala.

Now we have the problem that /var/log/impalad/profiles is getting out of diskspace because every insert containing the filedata is logged there. 
I did not find anything to configure or deactivate that kind of logging.


cdh 5.13

Hi @kfc

You can go to Configuration in CM Impala service and change the Impala Daemon Logging Threshold ERROR instead of INFO, so just the errors will be logged.

Changing the log level will not work.


You can disable query profile profile logging with the following impalad startup option:



If successful, you should see "Query profile archival is disabled" in the impalad ERROR log.
