Expert Contributor

Hello All,

try increasing heap size for metastore. Make sure DB connection is working fine.


Does the hive service check pass when metastore is up? Also, can you try to increase the Hive metastore heap size?

How did you install Hive (through Ambari or manually)? Can you check /var/log/hive/hivemetastore.log?

Check /var/log/hive/hivemetastore.out as well.
