In fast paced environment where the interval between the step 1 and 2 is # < 100ms (a simplified pipeline looks like):
0- catalog 'on demand' in use and disableHmsSync (enabled or disabled: no difference)
1- open session to coord A -> DROP TABLE X -> close session
2- open session to coord A
> CREATE TABLE X> close session
Results: the step
2 can fail with table already exist.
During the internal investigation was discovered that
IMPALA-9913 will regress the issue in almost all scenarios.
However considering that the investigation are internally ongoing it is nice to have the event tracked also here.
Once we are sure that
IMPALA-9913 fix these events we can close this as duplicate, in alternative carry on the investigation.
