Subject Re: Spark and Hive connection
Date Thu, 06 Apr 2017 17:18:14 GMT
Spark connects directly to the Hive metastore service in order to manage
table definitions and locations and such. If you are using the CLI
interfaces and turn on INFO level logging, you can see when you instantiate
a HiveContext that it is connecting to the Hive Metastore and the URL its
using for the connection.

Hope this helps,
