How to hide INFO & WARN while hive execution

Explorer

Hi -

I have configured and running HIVE in windows. Everything works well, but when I query any command in hive window. I am prompted with many INFO & WARN message.

Even If I run SHOW DATABASE; I get many info as below.

Can any one help out on how to hide or off this?

Thanks

From Hive doc https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+Cli

Logging

Hive uses log4j for logging. These logs are not emitted to the standard output by default but are instead captured to a log file specified by Hive's log4j properties file. By default Hive will use hive-log4j.default in the conf/ directory of the Hive installation which writes out logs to /tmp/<userid>/hive.log and uses the WARN level.

It is often desirable to emit the logs to the standard output and/or change the logging level for debugging purposes. These can be done from the command line as follows:

 $HIVE_HOME/bin/hive --hiveconf hive.root.logger=INFO,console

hive.root.logger specifies the logging level as well as the log destination. Specifying console as the target sends the logs to the standard error (instead of the log file).

See Hive Logging in Getting Started for more information.

Greg -

Thanks for your quick reply. I did try this command, but it don't work still.

hive --hiveconf hive.root.logger=INFO,console

Any other way ?

Guru

Hmmm, did I notice you are on windows? What version HDP, 2.4?

Explorer

Yeah - its windows and Hadoop 2.7.1

to add on -- Beeline version 2.1.1 by Apache Hive

@Varun Singh

Try launching the beeline command as "beeline --silent=true".

@Sindhu

thanks for the update. But is this like when we try exporting the result to some log file ?

@Varun Singh

Are you trying to redirect the output of Hive logging from console?

Refer Hive logging.

Explorer

No i am not trying to do any logging.

Also I was trying to execute beeline --silent=true in hive but it didnt work. Any though ?

Hi Friends,

I was looking for the same thing and found setting which can help you.

<p> set hive.server2.logging.operation.level=NONE; </p>

Thanks & Regards,
