Apache Spark-Apache Hive connection configuration
You can configure Spark properties in Ambari to use the Hive Warehouse Connector for accessing ACID table data in Hive.
You need to use the following software to connect Spark and Hive using the HiveWarehouseConnector library.
- HDP 3.0 or later
- Hive with HiveServer Interactive (HSI)
The Hive Warehouse Connector (HWC) and low-latency analytical processing (LLAP) are required for certain tasks, as shown in the following table:
Table 1. Spark Compatibility Tasks HWC Required LLAP Required Other Requirement/Comments Read Hive managed tables from Spark Yes Yes Ranger ACLs enforced. Write Hive managed tables from Spark Yes No Ranger ACLs enforced. Supports ORC only. Read Hive external tables from Spark No Only if HWC is used Table must be defined in Spark catalog. Ranger ACLs not enforced. Write Hive external tables from Spark No No Ranger ACLs enforced. Read Spark tables Yes Yes Ranger ACLs enforced. Write Spark tables Yes No Ranger ACLs enforced. Supports ORC only.
You need low-latency analytical processing (LLAP) in HSI to read ACID, or other Hive-managed tables, from Spark. You do not need LLAP to write to ACID, or other managed tables, from Spark. The HWC library internally uses the Hive Streaming API and LOAD DATA Hive commands to write the data. You do not need LLAP to access external tables from Spark with caveats shown in the table above.
spark-2-defaultsin Ambari to use the Hive Warehouse Connector for accessing data in Hive. Alternatively, configuration can be provided for each job using
|spark.sql.hive.hiveserver2.jdbc.url||URL for HiveServer2 Interactive||In Ambari, copy the value from Services > Hive > Summary > HIVESERVER2 INTERACTIVE JDBC URL.|
|spark.datasource.hive.warehouse.metastoreUri||URI for metastore||Copy the value from hive.metastore.uris. For example,
|spark.datasource.hive.warehouse.load.staging.dir||HDFS temp directory for batch writes to Hive||For example,
|spark.hadoop.hive.llap.daemon.service.hosts||Application name for LLAP service||Copy value from Advanced hive-interactive-site >
|spark.hadoop.hive.zookeeper.quorum||Zookeeper hosts used by LLAP||Copy value from Advanced
Spark on a Kerberized YARN cluster
In Spark client mode on a kerberized Yarn cluster, set the following property:
spark.sql.hive.hiveserver2.jdbc.url.principal. This property must be
hive.server2.authentication.kerberos.principal. In Ambari, copy
the value for this property from
