Configuring the Hive Transaction Manager

Configure the following Hive properties to enable transactions:

  • hive.txn.manager

  • hive.compactor.initiator.on

  • hive.compactor.worker.threads


To disable automatic compactions for individual tables, set the NO_AUTO_COMPACTION table property for those tables. This overrides the configuration settings in the hive-site.xml file. However, this property does not prevent manual compactions.

If you experience problems while enabling Hive transactions, check the Hive log file at /tmp/hive/hive.log.
