How to create hive table as non-transactional, by default?

avatar

I am using HDP hive-3.1.

My configuration as follows:

hive.support.concurrency=true;

hive.txn.manager=org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.lockmgr.DbTxnManager; hive.exec.dynamic.partition.mode=nonstrict;

hive.compactor.initiator.on=true;

hive.compactor.worker.threads=2;

 

By default, transactional table is created in hive.

 

however, i want to create non-transactional table , by default. I tried to change hive.txn.manager to Dummymanager. Though after changing the configuration, hive table is created as transactional.

 

any suggestion to create non-transactional table, be default?

Hi @na2_koihey11 ,

 

We're also using HDP 3.1 and we are able to create non-transactional tables by default by setting hive.default.fileformat.managed to TextFile.

 

Thanks,

Megh

We've set this property in advanced hive-site section

hive.default.fileformat.managed = ORC

hive.default.fileformat = TextFile

 

we tried to change hive.default.fileformat.managed to TextFile, still it doesn't work.
Could you please check how it works for you.
