Hey @saurabh707 

 

Could you please try the below:

 

Update hive log4j configs through CM 
Hive on Tez -> Configuration -> HiveServer2 Logging Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve)
Hive  -> Configuration -> Hive Metastore Server Logging Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve)

Add the following to config:

appender.DRFA.strategy.action.type=DELETE
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.basepath=${log.dir}
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.maxdepth=1
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.glob=${log.file}.*
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.type=IfFileName
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.nestedConditions.type=IfAccumulatedFileCount
appender.DRFA.strategy.action.PathConditions.nestedConditions.exceeds=10

 

Let me know if the above addresses it.
