Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2022

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 2.0.1 and later


The Hue home page does not respond. All services show as healthy in Cloudera Manager, however the following errors are reported in Hue's error log on node 3.

[23/Feb/2013 03:45:36 +0000] thrift_util ERROR Thrift saw exception (this may be expected).
Traceback (most recent call last):

  return self.recv_fetch()
 File "/usr/share/hue/apps/beeswax/gen-py/beeswaxd/", line 275, in recv_fetch
  raise result.error2

Re-starting both Beeswax and Hue servers clears out the problem and temporarily resolves the hanging issue.
