Hive: Unable to abort invalid transaction id

New Contributor

Context: Flume takes files from local dir and writes them to transactional hive table.

Problem: Sometime flume agent fails with exception. For example:

Can anyone explain why HCatalog trying to abort transaction? Setup: HDP-2.5

Flume conf:

f.sources = f_dir
f.channels = f_channel
f.sinks = f_sink

f.sources.f_dir.type = spooldir
f.sources.f_dir.spoolDir =  /var/data/f_data/History
f.sources.f_dir.deletePolicy = immediate
f.sources.f_dir.channels = f_channel
f.sources.f_dir.deserializer.maxLineLength = 150000

f.channels.f_channel.type = file
f.channels.f_channel.capacity = 20000
f.channels.f_channel.transactionCapacity = 15000

f.sinks.f_sink.type = hive
f.sinks.f_sink.hive.metastore = thrift://node02.hdp:9083
f.sinks.f_sink.hive.database = default
f.sinks.f_sink.hive.table = f
f.sinks.f_sink.channel = f_channel
f.sinks.f_sink.serializer = JSON
f.sinks.f_sink.HDFSEventSink.batchSize = 2000
f.sinks.f_sink.callTimeout = 80000
f.sinks.f_sink.heartBeatInterval = 10000

Table - it's just some json fields, clustered by monotonically increasing timestamp into 30 buckets. Timestamp definitely not repeating.

Hive table props:

inputFormat:org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.orc.OrcInputFormat,
outputFormat:org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.orc.OrcOutputFormat,
compressed:false,
numBuckets:30,

	parameters:{serialization.format=1}),

Sorry for my english =)

Re: Hive: Unable to abort invalid transaction id

The problem was in Hive transaction timeouts.

In Flume agent conf:

hive_sink.heartBeatInterval = 10000

In Hive conf:

hive.txn.timeout = 300

Hive close transactions before any heartbeat was received.
