Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-21524) Impala Engine
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2019 17:07:00 GMT


Xuefu Zhang commented on HIVE-21524:

This sounds interesting. However, I'm trying to figure out what a user gains from this if
query is simply routed to Impala coordinator. As an alternative, a user can just connect the
client (ex. beeline) to Impala coordinator directly.

> Now that Impala has "dedicated coordinator" capability, it could be interesting to pair
HiveServer2 instances with Impala dedicated coordinators on the same localhost.  A client
could request an 'impala' execution engine and subsequent queries would be routed to the local

> This would allow clients seamless access to both capabilities without needing different
connections or drivers, Hive would also be a central location for auditing and authorization.
