Hue connects hiveserver2 timeout in hortonworks

Hue connects hiveserver2 timeout in hortonworks

New Contributor

Hi, everybody

I think i encountered one messy problem. After installing the hadoop,hive,hue, etc. services successfully and using hue without any problem for a while, I encountered such one problem. it printed the timeout error when i tried to login in to the beeswax page. I have tried some ways including installing the hiveserver2 service and hue server service in the same host, changing the value of hive_server_host from fqdn to localhost, changing the server_conn_timeout from 120 to 300 of hue.ini, etc. But all these ways didn't work. I think maybe i should read the source code of hue and hive, and then trace it. Maybe you guys have solutions, do you? Thanks in advance.

Versions of HDP and hue, hive:

HDP: 2.5.0.0

hue: 2.6.1.2.5.0.0

hive: 1.2.1000

Parts of the logs of hivesever2 in both cases:

1. successfully login from hue ui

see the text file or png file.

success-hiveserver2.txt

13458-success-hiveserver2.png

2. failed to login from hue ui, or timeout error

see the text file or png file.

fail-hiveserver2.txt

13460-fail-hiveserver2.png

Parts of the logs of hue in fail case:

see the text file.

fail-hue.txt

Please use vim or other editor open the text file because of the aligning problem. Ignoring the time in the log, maybe it's a bug of hue, or maybe no.

Buy the way, some of the configuration options of hive like this:

hive.server2.enable.doAs=true

hive.server2.authentication=NOSASL

Hello jack jones, can you post the full beeswax configuration section of hue.ini?

Hi Juan, the attachement is the whole hue's configurations:

I find that the temporary solution is restart the hiveserver2 service frequently. Post the full beeswax configuration section of hue.ini.

Hi Jack,

Saw a similar issue, when moving away from beeswax page with a running query and trying to get back to it causing timeout. Used restarting HS2 as workaround as well.

Was able to address this issue by setting close_queries=true, so HUE doesn't tries to connect to older session thats hung.

Did anyone find solution to this problem? I am having same issue for Hue. I noticed that if new user is created Hive tables will work without issue for new user for some time and then same problem starts. Also HS2 is restarted it works fine for some it. In the meantime Hive tables are fully functional from Ambari Web UI.
