Hive 1.2.1 - Issue on partitioned table

I need your help about a behavior about Hive 1.2.1 (on HDP 2.3) , after an upgrade from Hortonworks HDP 2.1 to HDP 2.3.

To be honest , we don’t believe that this upgrade cause the issue .

The “bug” is only for partitioned table when we use the partitioned field.

Example :

create table prova_small  (campo1 string, campo2 string)
partitioned by (campo3 int);
alter table prova_small add partition (campo3 = 1);
insert into prova_small partition (campo3=1) values ('a', 'b');
select distinct campo3 from prova_small;

The error is :

exited with a non-zero exit code 1
Vertex did not succeed due to OWN_TASK_FAILURE, failedTasks:1 killedTasks:0,
Vertex vertex_1456148658200_0114_3_00 [Map 1] killed/failed due
to:OWN_TASK_FAILURE]Vertex killed, vertexName=Reducer 2,
vertexId=vertex_1456148658200_0114_3_01, diagnostics=[Vertex received Kill
while in RUNNING state., Vertex did not succeed due to OTHER_VERTEX_FAILURE,
failedTasks:0 killedTasks:1, Vertex vertex_1456148658200_0114_3_01 [Reducer 2]
killed/failed due to:OTHER_VERTEX_FAILURE]DAG did not succeed due to
VERTEX_FAILURE. failedVertices:1 killedVertices:1

Any idea ?



Thanks @Neeraj Sabharwal.

But in Hive 1.2.1 we are still unable to use ACID semantics ?


Short answer is Yes ..We can test and learn but not in prod
