Once you have connected your metastores, manage how metadata changes are detected by selecting a preferred operation mode when editing a metastore agent.
|Listen for changes in real time if supported by your source environment.
|Periodically scan source metadata for changes.
If your source environment is not configured to use Listeners, LiveData Migrator uses Scanning as the preferred operation mode.
If your source environment version isn't supported for Hive Migrator Listening mode, configure your source metastore agent to use Scanning as the preferred operation mode.
Configure your source metastore agent to use Scanning as the preferred operation mode if your source environment generates low or insufficient volumes of notifications from the events stream.
Listening mode requirements

- Listeners enabled on your cluster.
Listeners are enabled by default in HDP 3.1.5 and CDP 7.1.x.
You can confirm that listeners are enabled for an agent using the hive agent check command.
If enabled, the response will show
