PutHiveStreaming Nifi processor; various errors

avatar
Expert Contributor

I'm trying to stream data to Hive with the PutStreamingHive Nifi processor.

I saw this post: https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/59411/how-to-use-puthivestreaming.html and can confirm that:

  1. org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.lockmgr.DbTxnManager is the transaction manager
  2. ACID transactions run compactor is enabled
  3. There are threads available for the compactor

I created an ORC backed Hive table:

CREATE TABLE `streaming_messages`(
  `message` string, 
   etc...)
CLUSTERED BY (message) INTO 5 BUCKETS
STORED AS ORC
LOCATION
  'hdfs://hadoop01.woolford.io:8020/apps/hive/warehouse/mydb.db/streaming_messages'
TBLPROPERTIES('transactional'='true');

I then created a `PutStreamingHive` processor that takes messages Avro messages and writes them to a Hive table:

I notice that the Nifi processor uses Thrift to send data to Hive. There are some errors in nifi-app.log and hivemetastore.log.

Stacktrace from nifi-app.log:

Hi Matt,

I had faced thrift server connectivity issue with NiFi-1.2.0 (Installed in HDP 2.6.0). I tried replacing the .nar file with yours given .nar, But it did not help.

I tried to install NiFi-1.1.0 and tried to run without replacing the .nar file. It did not help either. But, when I did replaced the .nar with yours .nar file with NiFi-1.1.0, then it worked for me !!

Can you please help me generating the 'nifi-hive.nar' file for NiFi-1.2.0. Also, it would be great if you provide the steps to generate the .nar file and what specific changes were made, so that .nar file worked for NiFi-1.1.0.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, thanks for quick answer! Is any way to solve this issue between HDP v 2.5 and HDF v 2.0?

Or we have only one way is to downgrade our HDP to version 2.4?

Is any documented way to do this downgrade?

Hey

You can follow the steps mentioned by Matthew.

If you want the exact steps please do the following.

1. Download the jar.

2. Go to /usr/hdf/current/nifi/lib/ which is the usual installation directory of HDF NiFi.

3. Backup the file nifi-hive-nar-1.0.0.2.0.0.0-579.nar

4. Replace it with the one provided by Matthew.

Then you should be able to run the streaming processor.

Hi Matt,

I did faced the same issue with thrift server connectivity. Replacing the .nar file with your given .nar file has resolved my issue.

But, can you please help me is getting the .nar file generated for the latest version of NiFi-1.2.0 ?

Because, I tried replacing the .nar in NiFi-1.2.0 version. But, the issue was same. I tried installing NiFi-1.1.0 and then replaced the .nar file and it worked !!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Matt, I am using nifi-1.4.0 with HDP 2.6. I was facing the same issue in PutHiveStreaming processor. I replaced it with the nar you provided. It is working fine when I'm writing to a non partitioned table. But when I tried to write it to a partitioned hive table, it throws the following error :

PutHiveStreaming[id=9b7b6af6-015f-1000-8772-6b70eb0a4841] failed to process due to java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: The root scratch dir: /tmp/hive on HDFS should be writable. Current permissions are: rwx------; rolling back session: {}
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: The root scratch dir: /tmp/hive on HDFS should be writable. Current permissions are: rwx------

I have provided all the necessary permissions to /tmp/hive folder, still I'm facing the same issue.

Please let me know if I'm missing something.

Thanks,

@Matt Burgess I am using nifi 1.4.0 with HDP 2.6. I was facing the same error. I replaced the hive nar bundle with the one you provided. It is now working fine for the unpartitioned table. But when I'm trying to ingest on the partitioned table, it throws the following error:

Issue Resolved.

In HDP 3.0, please use PutHive3Streaming, PutHive3QL and SelectHiveQL.

Cheers.
