Nothing seems to work. I restart the server after every configuration change.
I also went and changed hive-env.sh to -Xmx8g and it still doesn't seem to fix the issue. I ran -verbose:gc and see that the gc stops at ~1000MB. Why wouldn't that go on up to 8G if I changed -Xmx to be 8g?
Is there anyway to tell if it is the client breaking and needing more heap or the map jobs?
