Hive beeline stops showing traces on console

Hive beeline stops showing traces on console

New Contributor

I start up beeline like:


beeline -u jdbc:hive2://


beeline -u jdbc:hive2:// --verbose=true --silent=false


and run some querries and after some random fairly short time, all the progress output that appears about the MR job status

stops showing up on the console. If I restart beeline again, I see output again, and then it stops after some time.

I was running a script via the !run <file> command and there was a syntax error in the script. Beeline showed 

no errors. I swithed to the deprecated hive CLI and run the same script via 'source <file>' and low and behold

it actually showed me the error so I could fix the script and then it ran successfully. What's up with beeline not

consistently showing progress traces or error traces?
