how to set the max concurrent compaction number

Expert Contributor

Hi all,

HDP 2.6.3 with Hive 2.

I have enabled the ACID transaction; when run the compaction I have seen max 3 job on YARN queue.

I tried to launch manually more than 3 compaction, but they are execute 3 at a time.

Is there a parameter to set the max concurrent compaction jobs?

Thancks in advance
