Hive quries debugging and troubleshooting

Hive quries debugging and troubleshooting

New Contributor

I wanted to understand how to approach to the solution of hive query failures;

  • in our environment, we get numerous failure for "Vertex issue" / "Out of memory" etc ? is it common?
  • how to check Hive Server2 logs/ yarn-logs and resource manager logs ( what to look for ? ) how to know if there is SKEW or another issue - Are there article covering these topics
  • What hive setting/parameters means what and how it affects --> where to look for this details?

what tools are good or being used to analyze issues in hive queries or map/reduce level?

3. You can use Tez View to debug Hive Performance Issues:

4. You can refer to following links to understand various config parameters and its values:
