Hello Experts, In Ambari 2.1 there is a "Run Compactor" toggle button in the ACID Transactions setting panel under Hive/Configs. unknown.png If an administrator has this enabled, and then uses Service/Actions to add additional Hive Metastores (for Hive Metastore HA), a customer may get the impression "this gets pushed out to all of Metastores and running in multiple places".

Could someone clarify this please?
