Any help is appreciated .

Hi @bhara ,

 

Both error messages points out you need to tune your Hue performance.

 

First thing you need to check if you are using the default SQLite DB. If so, you should move the database from the default database across to another database backend such as MySql/Postgres/Oracle, which handles locking better than the default SQLite DB. Hue should not be run on SQLite in an environment with more than 1 concurrent user. Here is the doc on how to switch the DB:

https://docs.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/5/latest/topics/hue_dbs_0.html

 

You can also check this Hue performance tuning guide for more information on tuning Hue like load balancing etc:

https://gethue.com/performance-tuning/

 

Thanks and hope this helps!

Hi @lwang ,

 

I have installed HUE through Ambari by following below document with the help of @stevenmatison  

 

https://github.com/steven-dfheinz/HDP2-Hue4-Service

 

I was able to successfully  install  and bring up the services . I chose my metadata database as oracle as attached . But when i look into oracle database i don't see and metadata tables created . How do i check where Hue desktop is having its repository .

Hi @bhara,

 

You can check the Hue configuration from Hue UI to confirm if Hue is using Oracle database.

  1. Login as Hue admin user
  2. change the URL to https://<hue-host>:8888/hue/desktop/dump_config
  3. Then click desktop section
  4. Then search database from the page

I attached a couple screenshots for above step 3 and 4.

Step 3 screenshot:

Step 4 screenshot:

Thanks,

Below are my databse detaisl i put in hue.ini

 

[[database]]

# postgresql_psycopg2, mysql, sqlite3 or oracle.
#
# Note that for sqlite3, 'name', below is a path to the filename. For other backends, it is the database name
# Note for Oracle, options={"threaded":true} must be set in order to avoid crashes.
# Note for Oracle, you can use the Oracle Service Name by setting "host=" and "port=" and then "name=(host):(port)/(service_name)".
# Note for MariaDB use the 'mysql' engine.
engine=oracle

## password_script=/path/script

and i see the below coming up when i open hue UI with error page .

 

 

 

 

DATABASES



@bhara  The error is very specific "OperationalError: database is locked"

 

Have you checked the database.table you are querying is locked or not?   
If the error is indeed from the oracle metastore, is that database or table locked?

 

You could test another query on another table as well, to see if it is just that table locked.  After removing the lock, does the query work again?   Sometimes hive can lock tables, and never unlock them.  You would need to query the hive metastore directly, and manually remove these locks if they persist.

Hi @stevenmatison ,

 

I was able to run the same query from hive ,but from hue i see database lock . When i did some research i got to know that  hue stores the user requests in metadata database . so when i checked repository data base i dont see any tables created . so i tried configuring metadata repository by configuring to oracle database and i am running into issues (in the above post ) .

 

Regards

Bharad

Yah it seems that error is usually related to the stock db.    If you can't see any tables in the oracle,  then after configure for oracle and restart it must not have installed the metadata tables.   You will need to get them installed and I suspect the lock error will go away.

 

Check here for some oracle steps:

 

https://docs.gethue.com/administrator/administration/database/#oracle

Hi @stevenmatison  i am trying to get the backup of sqllite database to import into oracle database as i dont have database dump from ambari .

 

Regards

Bharad

@bhara did you follow all the steps to use Oracle?

Hi,

 

We are also getting the same error almost every week for any database. Can we get any permanent solution for this? After waiting for sometime it get resolved itself. But i want to know the root cause for this and if it database or table gets locked, how i can release that lock for those DB and table in MySQL database.
