      Description

      Within the execute method of HiveServer2, there appears to be a connection leak. With fairly straightforward series of INSERT statements, the connection count in the logs continues to increase over time. Under certain loads, this can also consume all underlying threads of the Hive metastore and result in HS2 becoming unresponsive to new connections.

      The log below is the result of some python code executing a single insert statement, and then looping through a series of 10 more insert statements. We can see there's one dangling connection left open after each execution leaving us with 12 open connections (11 from the execute statements + 1 from HS2 startup).
