[ Edited ]



I'll give little background about this. We are inserting data into hive tables using flume through Kite Sink. This is not streaming job. Flume is started using more memory than norma and suddenly we observed the below message in the flume logs.

sinkRunner -pollingRunner-DefaultSinkProcessor org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaStoreClient.Open Connection reset


Please see more error message in below screen shot.

Why flume is connecting  to hive metastore while inserting data into hive tables through kite sink? 

Note: This is not streaming data.
