Graceful shutdown

You can configure the graceful shutdown as described in Graceful shutdown.

Hive metastores

As a default, Hive metastores have 5 minutes to shut down gracefully.

The Hive metastore process will receive a SIGTERM signal when Kubernetes wants to terminate the Pod. After the graceful shutdown timeout runs out, and the process still didn’t exit, Kubernetes will issue a SIGKILL signal.

However, there is no acknowledge message in the log indicating a graceful shutdown.
