New configurations

Name Classification Description
hive.metastore.fs.drop.partition.threads hive-site Number of core threads in the drop partition thread pool.
hive.metastore.fs.drop.partition.keepalive.time hive-site Time in seconds that an idle drop partition async thread (from the thread pool) will wait for a new task to arrive before terminating.
hive.metastore.fs.drop.partition.threadpool.max.queue.size hive-site Maximum queue size to be used in thread pool for dropping of partitions from file system.
hive.groupby.enable.deterministic.distribution hive-site Enable deterministic distribution of keys to reducers. It will pass a constant seed value while calling the rand function used for random partitioning.
hive.privilege.synchronizer hive-site Whether to synchronize privileges from external authorizer periodically in HiveServer2.
hive.cli.query.file.encoding hive-site File encoding for the all type of query files (query file, init query file, rc file etc) provided in the cli arguments.
hive.emr.tez.shuffle.enabled hive-site Hive on Tez jobs now use tez_shuffle by default instead of mapreduce_shuffle as the default Shuffle Handler.

Deprecated configurations

The following configuration properties are deprecated as a result of HIVE-23354 and are no longer supported with Amazon EMR releases 6.11.0 and higher.
