I'm following the basic steps in Cosmos and when I write this command:

hive

hive - select * from <my_user>starwars; // or any other SQL-like sentence, properly called HiveQL

the terminal shows this message: log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate class [org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.HiveEventCounter]. java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not load shims in class org.apache.hadoop.log.metrics.EventCounter at org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.ShimLoader.createShim(ShimLoader.java:123) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.ShimLoader.loadShims(ShimLoader.java:115) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.ShimLoader.getEventCounter(ShimLoader.java:98) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.HiveEventCounter.<init>(HiveEventCounter.java:34) at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.java:27) at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(Constructor.java:513) at java.lang.Class.newInstance0(Class.java:357) at java.lang.Class.newInstance(Class.java:310) at org.apache.log4j.helpers.OptionConverter.instantiateByClassName(OptionConverter.java:330) at org.apache.log4j.helpers.OptionConverter.instantiateByKey(OptionConverter.java:121) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.parseAppender(PropertyConfigurator.java:664) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.parseCategory(PropertyConfigurator.java:647) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.configureRootCategory(PropertyConfigurator.java:544) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.doConfigure(PropertyConfigurator.java:440) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.doConfigure(PropertyConfigurator.java:476) at org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator.configure(PropertyConfigurator.java:354) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.common.LogUtils.initHiveLog4jDefault(LogUtils.java:127) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.common.LogUtils.initHiveLog4jCommon(LogUtils.java:77) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.common.LogUtils.initHiveLog4j(LogUtils.java:58) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.cli.CliDriver.run(CliDriver.java:641) at org.apache.hadoop.hive.cli.CliDriver.main(CliDriver.java:625)

Are you using the Hive CLI inside the cluster?

I am using the Hive CLI in the Cosmos Machine: ssh user@cosmos.lab.fi-ware.org

Despite the error above, the Hive CLI should prompt you for a query with "hive>". Please, have a look a the end of my execution:

$ hive
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate class [org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.HiveEventCounter].
java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not load shims in class org.apache.hadoop.log.metrics.EventCounter
...
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate appender named "EventCounter".

Logging initialized using configuration in jar:file:/usr/local/apache-hive-0.13.0-bin/lib/hive-common-0.13.0.jar!/hive-log4j.properties
hive>

Such an error is because a version missmatching when starting a Hive component, but nothing important.
