I'm getting a similar timeout problem to other users - I'm running a big query against a Hive/Hadoop cluster, and the workbench times out, regardless of the timeout setting. This really reduces the usefulness of the tool, to the point where there isn't much point using it, because no useful query I run can complete
The UI is nice, the Intellisense is great, it's really useful for looking at table/view definitions, all the little poking about jobs, but just can't complete the really important work, actually running queries on massive datasets and getting the results out. Which is fairly important
is there anyway of just switching off the timeout? I've set it to the maximum of 600 seconds, but it just doesn't work. So many of the jobs I do have really long run times, I just set them off and forget about them, sometimes overnight. If I'm using a tool that decides it can wait more than a couple of minutes, then perhaps it's not ready to be called "Workbench for Hadoop"
