WebHCat returns exitcode 143 (w/o an explanation)

    Details

    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed

      Description

      The message might look like this:
      {"statement":"use default; show table extended like xyz;","error":"unable to show table: xyz","exec":{"stdout":"","stderr":"","exitcode":143}}

      WebHCat has a templeton.exec.timeout property which kills an HCat request (i.e. something like a DDL statement that gets routed to HCat CLI) if it takes longer than this timeout.

      Since WebHCat does a fork/exec to 'hcat' script, the timeout is implemented as SIGTERM sent to the subprocess. SIGTERM value is 15. So it's reported as 128 + 15 = 143.

      Error logging/reporting should be improved in this case.
