How can I find which Hive version I am using from the command prompt. Below is the details-

I am using Putty to connect to hive table and access records in the tables. So what I did is- I opened Putty and in the host name I typed- and then I click Open. And then I entered my username and password and then few commands to get to Hive sql. Below is the list what I did

$ bash

bash-3.00$ hive

Hive history file=/tmp/rkost/hive_job_log_rkost_201207010451_1212680168.txt

hive> set;

hive> select * from table LIMIT 1;

So is there any way from the command prompt I can find which hive version I am using and Hadoop version too?

You can not get hive version from command line.

You can checkout hadoop version as mentioned by Dave.

Also if you are using cloudera distribution, then look directly at the libs:

ls /usr/lib/hive/lib/ and check for hive library
