We use the Cloudera ODBC Driver for Impala and Cloudera ODBC Driver for Hive inside a service. The service uses a DSN-less connection strings with UseKeytab to authenticate. We do not perform any ticket management, we leave this down to the ODBC driver.
We have observed that connections to hive do not renew the TGT, and will reuse an existing service ticket (expected behaviour).
However, Impala connections renew the TGT on every connection (thus destroying all service tickets..) Impala Service tickets never get reused and the ticket cache is always destroyed. This has to be a bug.
Could you provide more details about your OS and Impala ODBC Driver version? I tested Impala ODBC Driver 2.6.13 on Linux. The driver doesn't renew the ticket for each DSN-less connection on my host.
