 | carbon.badRecords.location | (none) | CarbonData can detect the records not conforming to defined table schema and isolate them as bad records. This property is used to specify where to store such bad records. |
 | carbon.streaming.auto.handoff.enabled | true | CarbonData supports storing of streaming data. To have high throughput for streaming, the data is written in Row format which is highly optimized for write, but performs poorly for query. When this property is true and when the streaming data size reaches ***carbon.streaming.segment.max.size***, CabonData will automatically convert the data to columnar format and optimize it for faster querying.**NOTE:** It is not recommended to keep the default value which is true. |
 | carbon.streaming.segment.max.size | 1024000000 | CarbonData writes streaming data in row format which is optimized for high write throughput. This property defines the maximum size of data to be held is row format, beyond which it will be converted to columnar format in order to support high performance query, provided ***carbon.streaming.auto.handoff.enabled*** is true. **NOTE:** Setting higher value will impact the streaming ingestion. The value has to be configured in bytes. |
-| carbon.query.show.datamaps | true | CarbonData stores datamaps as independent tables so as to allow independent maintenance to some extent. When this property is true,which is by default, show tables command will list all the tables including datatmaps(eg: Preaggregate table), else datamaps will be excluded from the table list.**NOTE:**  It is generally not required for the user to do any maintenance operations on these tables and hence not required to be seen.But it is shown by default so that user or admin can get clear understanding of the system for capacity planning. |
-| carbon.segment.lock.files.preserve.hours | 48 | In order to support parallel data loading onto the same table, CarbonData sequences(locks) at the granularity of segments.Operations affecting the segment(like IUD, alter) are blocked from parallel operations. This property value indicates the number of hours the segment lock files will be preserved after dataload. These lock files will be deleted with the clean command after the configured number of hours. |
-| carbon.timestamp.format | yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss | CarbonData can understand data of timestamp type and process it in special manner.It can be so that the format of Timestamp data is different from that understood by CarbonData by default. This configuration allows users to specify the format of Timestamp in their data. |

It can be so that the format of Timestamp data is different from that understood by CarbonData by default. This configuration allows users to specify the format of Timestamp in their data. |
 | carbon.lock.type | LOCALLOCK | This configuration specifies the type of lock to be acquired during concurrent operations on table. There are following types of lock implementation: - LOCALLOCK: Lock is created on local file system as file. This lock is useful when only one spark driver (thrift server) runs on a machine and no other CarbonData spark application is launched concurrently. - HDFSLOCK: Lock is created on HDFS file system as file. This lock is useful when multiple CarbonData spark applications are launched and no ZooKeeper is running on cluster and HDFS supports file based locking. |
 | carbon.lock.path | TABLEPATH | This configuration specifies the path where lock files have to be created. Recommended to configure zookeeper lock type or configure HDFS lock path(to this property) in case of S3 file system as locking is not feasible on S3. |
 | enable.offheap.sort | true | Whether carbondata will use offheap or onheap memory. By default, the value is true and carbondata will use the property value from *carbon.unsafe.working.memory.in.mb* or *carbon.unsafe.driver.working.memory.in.mb* as the amount of memory; if it is false, carbondata will use the minimum value between the configured amount of unsafe memory and the 60% of JVM Heap Memory as the amount of memory. |
 | carbon.unsafe.working.memory.in.mb | 512 | CarbonData supports storing data in off-heap memory for certain operations during data loading and query. This helps to avoid the Java GC and thereby improve the overall performance. The Minimum value recommeded is 512MB. Any value below this is reset to default value of 512MB. **NOTE:** The below formulas explain how to arrive at the off-heap size required.<u>Memory Required For Data Loading per executor: </u>(*carbon.number.of.cores.while.loading*) * (Number of tables to load in parallel) * (*offheap.sort.chunk.size.inmb* + *carbon.blockletgroup.size.in.mb* + *carbon.blockletgroup.size.in.mb*/3.5 ). <u>Memory required for Query per executor:</u> (*carbon.blockletgroup.size.in.mb* + *carbon.blockletgroup.size.in.mb* * 3.5) * spark.executor.cores |
 | carbon.unsafe.driver.working.memory.in.mb | (none) | CarbonData supports storing data in unsafe on-heap memory in driver for certain operations like insert into, query for loading datamap cache. The Minimum value recommended is 512MB. If this configuration is not set, carbondata will use the value of `carbon.unsafe.working.memory.in.mb`. |
 | carbon.update.sync.folder | /tmp/carbondata | CarbonData maintains last modification time entries in modifiedTime.mdt to determine the schema changes and reload only when necessary. This configuration specifies the path where the file needs to be written. |
-| carbon.invisible.segments.preserve.count | 200 | CarbonData maintains each data load entry in tablestatus file. The entries from this file are not deleted for those segments that are compacted or dropped, but are made invisible. If the number of data loads are very high, the size and number of entries in tablestatus file can become too many causing unnecessary reading of all data. This configuration specifies the number of segment entries to be maintained afte they are compacted or dropped.Beyond this, the entries are moved to a separate history tablestatus file. **NOTE:** The entries in tablestatus file help to identify the operations performed on CarbonData table and is also used for checkpointing during various data manupulation operations. This is similar to AUDIT file maintaining all the operations and its status.Hence the entries are never deleted but moved to a separate history file. |
-| carbon.lock.retries | 3 | CarbonData ensures consistency of operations by blocking certain operations from running in parallel. In order to block the operations from running in parallel, lock is obtained on the table. This configuration specifies the maximum number of retries to obtain the lock for any operations other than load. **NOTE:** Data manupulation operations like Compaction,UPDATE,DELETE  or LOADING,UPDATE,DELETE are not allowed to run in parallel.How ever data loading can happen in parallel to compaction. |

 | carbon.concurrent.lock.retries | 100 | CarbonData supports concurrent data loading onto same table. To ensure the loading status is correctly updated into the system,locks are used to sequence the status updation step. This configuration specifies the maximum number of retries to obtain the lock for updating the load status. **NOTE:** This value is high as more number of concurrent loading happens,more the chances of not able to obtain the lock when tried. Adjust this value according to the number of concurrent loading to be supported by the system. |

This also determines the number of threads to be used to read the input files (csv) in parallel.**NOTE:** This configured value is used in every data loading step to parallelize the operations. Configuring a higher value can lead to increased early thread pre-emption by OS and there by reduce the overall performance. |
 | enable.unsafe.sort | true | CarbonData supports unsafe operations of Java to avoid GC overhead for certain operations. This configuration enables to use unsafe functions in CarbonData. **NOTE:** For operations like data loading, which generates more short lived Java objects, Java GC can be a bottle neck. Using unsafe can overcome the GC overhead and improve the overall performance. |

 | carbon.bad.records.action | FAIL | CarbonData in addition to identifying the bad records, can take certain actions on such data. This configuration can have four types of actions for bad records namely FORCE, REDIRECT, IGNORE and FAIL. If set to FORCE then it auto-corrects the data by storing the bad records as NULL. If set to REDIRECT then bad records are written to the raw CSV instead of being loaded. If set to IGNORE then bad records are neither loaded nor written to the raw CSV. If set to FAIL then data loading fails if any bad records are found. |
 | carbon.options.is.empty.data.bad.record | false | Based on the business scenarios, empty("" or '' or ,,) data can be valid or invalid. This configuration controls how empty data should be treated by CarbonData. If false, then empty ("" or '' or ,,) data will not be considered as bad record and vice versa. |
 | carbon.options.bad.record.path | (none) | Specifies the HDFS path where bad records are to be stored. By default the value is Null. This path must to be configured by the user if ***carbon.options.bad.records.logger.enable*** is **true** or ***carbon.bad.records.action*** is **REDIRECT**. |
-| carbon.blockletgroup.size.in.mb | 64 | Please refer to [file-structure-of-carbondata](./file-structure-of-carbondata.md#carbondata-file-format) to understand the storage format of CarbonData. The data are read as a group of blocklets which are called blocklet groups. This parameter specifies the size of each blocklet group. Higher value results in better sequential IO access. The minimum value is 16MB, any value lesser than 16MB will reset to the default value (64MB). **NOTE:** Configuring a higher value might lead to poor performance as an entire blocklet group will have to read into memory before processing.For filter queries with limit, it is **not advisable** to have a bigger blocklet size. For aggregation queries which need to return more number of rows, bigger blocklet size is advisable. |

 | carbon.sort.file.write.buffer.size | 16384 | CarbonData sorts and writes data to intermediate files to limit the memory usage. This configuration determines the buffer size to be used for reading and writing such files. **NOTE:** This configuration is useful to tune IO and derive optimal performance. Based on the OS and underlying harddisk type, these values can significantly affect the overall performance. It is ideal to tune the buffersize equivalent to the IO buffer size of the OS. Recommended range is between 10240 and 10485760 bytes. |
 | carbon.sort.intermediate.files.limit | 20 | CarbonData sorts and writes data to intermediate files to limit the memory usage. Before writing the target carbondata file, the records in these intermediate files needs to be merged to reduce the number of intermediate files. This configuration determines the minimum number of intermediate files after which merged sort is applied on them sort the data. **NOTE:** Intermediate merging happens on a separate thread in the background. Number of threads used is determined by ***carbon.merge.sort.reader.thread***. Configuring a low value will cause more time to be spent in merging these intermediate merged files which can cause more IO. Configuring a high value would cause not to use the idle threads to do intermediate sort merges. Recommended range is between 2 and 50. |
 | carbon.merge.sort.reader.thread | 3 | CarbonData sorts and writes data to intermediate files to limit the memory usage. When the intermediate files reaches ***carbon.sort.intermediate.files.limit***, the files will be merged in another thread pool. This value will control the size of the pool. Each thread will read the intermediate files and do merge sort and finally write the records to another file. **NOTE:** Refer to ***carbon.sort.intermediate.files.limit*** for operation description. Configuring smaller number of threads can cause merging slow down over loading process whereas configuring larger number of threads can cause thread contention with threads in other data loading steps. Hence configure a fraction of ***carbon.number.of.cores.while.loading***. |
 | carbon.merge.sort.prefetch | true | CarbonData writes every ***carbon.sort.size*** number of records to intermediate temp files during data loading to ensure memory footprint is within limits. These intermediate temp files will have to be sorted using merge sort before writing into CarbonData format. This configuration enables pre fetching of data from these temp files in order to optimize IO and speed up data loading process. |
 | carbon.prefetch.buffersize | 1000 | When the configuration ***carbon.merge.sort.prefetch*** is configured to true, we need to set the number of records that can be prefetched. This configuration is used specify the number of records to be prefetched.**NOTE: **Configuring more number of records to be prefetched increases memory footprint as more records will have to be kept in memory. |
-| enable.inmemory.merge.sort | false | CarbonData sorts and writes data to intermediate files to limit the memory usage. These intermediate files needs to be sorted again using merge sort before writing to the final carbondata file.Performing merge sort in memory would increase the sorting performance at the cost of increased memory footprint. This Configuration specifies to do in-memory merge sort or to do file based merge sort. |
-| carbon.sort.storage.inmemory.size.inmb | 512 | CarbonData writes every ***carbon.sort.size*** number of records to intermediate temp files during data loading to ensure memory footprint is within limits. When ***enable.unsafe.sort*** configuration is enabled, instead of using ***carbon.sort.size*** which is based on rows count, size occupied in memory is used to determine when to flush data pages to intermediate temp files. This configuration determines the memory to be used for storing data pages in memory. **NOTE:** Configuring a higher value ensures more data is maintained in memory and hence increases data loading performance due to reduced or no IO.Based on the memory availability in the nodes of the cluster, configure the values accordingly. |

 | carbon.load.sortmemory.spill.percentage | 0 | During data loading, some data pages are kept in memory upto memory configured in ***carbon.sort.storage.inmemory.size.inmb*** beyond which they are spilled to disk as intermediate temporary sort files. This configuration determines after what percentage data needs to be spilled to disk. **NOTE:** Without this configuration, when the data pages occupy upto configured memory, new data pages would be dumped to disk and old pages are still maintained in disk. |
 | carbon.enable.calculate.size | true | **For Load Operation**: Enabling this property will let carbondata calculate the size of the carbon data file (.carbondata) and the carbon index file (.carbonindex) for each load and update the table status file. **For Describe Formatted**: Enabling this property will let carbondata calculate the total size of the carbon data files and the carbon index files for the each table and display it in describe formatted command. **NOTE:** This is useful to determine the overall size of the carbondata table and also get an idea of how the table is growing in order to take up other backup strategy decisions. |
-| carbon.cutOffTimestamp | (none) | CarbonData has capability to generate the Dictionary values for the timestamp columns from the data itself without the need to store the computed dictionary values. This configuration sets the start date for calculating the timestamp. Java counts the number of milliseconds from start of "1970-01-01 00:00:00". This property is used to customize the start of position. For example "2000-01-01 00:00:00". **NOTE:** The date must be in the form ***carbon.timestamp.format***. CarbonData supports storing data for upto 68 years.For example, if the cut-off time is 1970-01-01 05:30:00, then data upto 2038-01-01 05:30:00 will be supported by CarbonData. |

 | carbon.timegranularity | SECOND | The configuration is used to specify the data granularity level such as DAY, HOUR, MINUTE, or SECOND. This helps to store more than 68 years of data into CarbonData. |
 | carbon.use.local.dir | true | CarbonData,during data loading, writes files to local temp directories before copying the files to HDFS. This configuration is used to specify whether CarbonData can write locally to tmp directory of the container or to the YARN application directory. |
-| carbon.sort.temp.compressor | SNAPPY | CarbonData writes every ***carbon.sort.size*** number of records to intermediate temp files during data loading to ensure memory footprint is within limits. These temporary files can be compressed and written in order to save the storage space. This configuration specifies the name of compressor to be used to compress the intermediate sort temp files during sort procedure in data loading. The valid values are 'SNAPPY','GZIP','BZIP2','LZ4','ZSTD' and empty. Specially, empty means that Carbondata will not compress the sort temp files. **NOTE:** Compressor will be useful if you encounter disk bottleneck.Since the data needs to be compressed and decompressed,it involves additional CPU cycles,but is compensated by the high IO throughput due to less data to be written or read from the disks. |
-| carbon.load.skewedDataOptimization.enabled | false | During data loading,CarbonData would divide the number of blocks equally so as to ensure all executors process same number of blocks. This mechanism satisfies most of the scenarios and ensures maximum parallel processing for optimal data loading performance.In some business scenarios, there might be scenarios where the size of blocks vary significantly and hence some executors would have to do more work if they get blocks containing more data. This configuration enables size based block allocation strategy for data loading. When loading, carbondata will use file size based block allocation strategy for task distribution. It will make sure that all the executors process the same size of data.**NOTE:** This configuration is useful if the size of your input data files varies widely, say 1MB to 1GB.For this configuration to work effectively,knowing the data pattern and size is important and necessary. |
-| enable.data.loading.statistics | false | CarbonData has extensive logging which would be useful for debugging issues related to performance or hard to locate issues. This configuration when made ***true*** would log additional data loading statistics information to more accurately locate the issues being debugged. **NOTE:** Enabling this would log more debug information to log files, there by increasing the log files size significantly in short span of time.It is advised to configure the log files size, retention of log files parameters in log4j properties appropriately. Also extensive logging is an increased IO operation and hence over all data loading performance might get reduced. Therefore it is recommended to enable this configuration only for the duration of debugging. |
-| carbon.dictionary.chunk.size | 10000 | CarbonData generates dictionary keys and writes them to separate dictionary file during data loading. To optimize the IO, this configuration determines the number of dictionary keys to be persisted to dictionary file at a time. **NOTE:** Writing to file also serves as a commit point to the dictionary generated.Increasing more values in memory causes more data loss during system or application failure.It is advised to alter this configuration judiciously. |
-| dictionary.worker.threads | 1 | CarbonData supports Optimized data loading by relying on a dictionary server. Dictionary server helps to maintain dictionary values independent of the data loading and there by avoids reading the same input data multiples times. This configuration determines the number of concurrent dictionary generation or request that needs to be served by the dictionary server. **NOTE:** This configuration takes effect when ***carbon.options.single.pass*** is configured as true.Please refer to *carbon.options.single.pass*to understand how dictionary server optimizes data loading. |
-| carbon.dictionary.server.port | 2030 | Single Pass Loading enables single job to finish data loading with dictionary generation on the fly. It enhances performance in the scenarios where the subsequent data loading after initial load involves fewer incremental updates on the dictionary.Single pass loading can be enabled using the option ***carbon.options.single.pass***. When this option is specified, a dictionary server will be internally started to handle the dictionary generation and query requests. This configuration specifies the port on which the server need to listen for incoming requests.Port value ranges between 0-65535 |
+| carbon.sort.temp.compressor | SNAPPY | CarbonData writes every ***carbon.sort.size*** number of records to intermediate temp files during data loading to ensure memory footprint is within limits. These temporary files can be compressed and written in order to save the storage space. This configuration specifies the name of compressor to be used to compress the intermediate sort temp files during sort procedure in data loading. The valid values are 'SNAPPY','GZIP','BZIP2','LZ4','ZSTD' and empty. By default, empty means that Carbondata will not compress the sort temp files. **NOTE:** Compressor will be useful if you encounter disk bottleneck. Since the data needs to be compressed and decompressed,it involves additional CPU cycles,but is compensated by the high IO throughput due to less data to be written or read from the disks. |
+| carbon.load.skewedDataOptimization.enabled | false | During data loading,CarbonData would divide the number of blocks equally so as to ensure all executors process same number of blocks. This mechanism satisfies most of the scenarios and ensures maximum parallel processing for optimal data loading performance. In some business scenarios, there might be scenarios where the size of blocks vary significantly and hence some executors would have to do more work if they get blocks containing more data. This configuration enables size based block allocation strategy for data loading. When loading, carbondata will use file size based block allocation strategy for task distribution. It will make sure that all the executors process the same size of data.**NOTE:** This configuration is useful if the size of your input data files varies widely, say 1MB to 1GB. For this configuration to work effectively,knowing the data pattern and size is important and necessary. |
+| enable.data.loading.statistics | false | CarbonData has extensive logging which would be useful for debugging issues related to performance or hard to locate issues. This configuration when made ***true*** would log additional data loading statistics information to more accurately locate the issues being debugged. **NOTE:** Enabling this would log more debug information to log files, there by increasing the log files size significantly in short span of time. It is advised to configure the log files size, retention of log files parameters in log4j properties appropriately. Also extensive logging is an increased IO operation and hence over all data loading performance might get reduced. Therefore it is recommended to enable this configuration only for the duration of debugging. |

This configuration specifies the port on which the server need to listen for incoming requests. Port value ranges between 0-65535 |
 | carbon.load.directWriteToStorePath.enabled | false | During data load, all the carbondata files are written to local disk and finally copied to the target store location in HDFS/S3. Enabling this parameter will make carbondata files to be written directly onto target HDFS/S3 location bypassing the local disk.**NOTE:** Writing directly to HDFS/S3 saves local disk IO(once for writing the files and again for copying to HDFS/S3) there by improving the performance. But the drawback is when data loading fails or the application crashes, unwanted carbondata files will remain in the target HDFS/S3 location until it is cleared during next data load or by running *CLEAN FILES* DDL command |
 | carbon.options.serialization.null.format | \N | Based on the business scenarios, some columns might need to be loaded with null values. As null value cannot be written in csv files, some special characters might be adopted to specify null values. This configuration can be used to specify the null values format in the data being loaded. |
 | carbon.column.compressor | snappy | CarbonData will compress the column values using the compressor specified by this configuration. Currently CarbonData supports 'snappy' and 'zstd' compressors. |

These delta files would grow as more number of DELETE/UPDATE operations are performed.Compaction of these delta files are termed as horizontal compaction. This configuration is used to turn ON/OFF horizontal compaction. After every DELETE and UPDATE statement, horizontal compaction may occur in case the delta (DELETE/ UPDATE) files becomes more than specified threshold.**NOTE: **Having many delta files will reduce the query performance as scan has to happen on all these files before the final state of data can be decided.Hence it is advisable to keep horizontal compaction enabled and configure reasonable values to ***carbon.horizontal.UPDATE.compaction.threshold*** and ***carbon.horizontal.DELETE.compaction.threshold*** |

-| carbon.update.segment.parallelism | 1 | CarbonData processes the UPDATE operations by grouping records belonging to a segment into a single executor task. When the amount of data to be updated is more, this behavior causes problems like restarting of executor due to low memory and data-spill related errors. This property specifies the parallelism for each segment during update.**NOTE:** It is recommended to set this value to a multiple of the number of executors for balance.Values range between 1 to 1000. |

 | carbon.concurrent.compaction | true | Compaction of different tables can be executed concurrently. This configuration determines whether to compact all qualifying tables in parallel or not. **NOTE: **Compacting concurrently is a resource demanding operation and needs more resources there by affecting the query performance also. This configuration is **deprecated** and might be removed in future releases. |
-| carbon.compaction.prefetch.enable | false | Compaction operation is similar to Query + data load where in data from qualifying segments are queried and data loading performed to generate a new single segment. This configuration determines whether to query ahead data from segments and feed it for data loading. **NOTE: **This configuration is disabled by default as it needs extra resources for querying extra data.Based on the memory availability on the cluster, user can enable it to improve compaction performance. |

These CarbonIndex files are read and loaded into driver and is used subsequently for pruning of data during queries. These CarbonIndex files are very small in size(few KB) and are many.Reading many small files from HDFS is not efficient and leads to slow IO performance.Hence these CarbonIndex files belonging to a segment can be combined into  a single file and read once there by increasing the IO throughput. This configuration enables to merge all the CarbonIndex files into a single MergeIndex file upon data loading completion.**NOTE:** Reading a single big file is more efficient in HDFS and IO throughput is very high.Due to this the time needed to load the index files into memory when query is received for the first time on that table is significantly reduced and there by significantly reduces the delay in serving the first query. |

 | max.query.execution.time | 60 | Maximum time allowed for one query to be executed. The value is in minutes. |
 | carbon.enableMinMax | true | CarbonData maintains the metadata which enables to prune unnecessary files from being scanned as per the query conditions. To achieve pruning, Min,Max of each column is maintined.Based on the filter condition in the query, certain data can be skipped from scanning by matching the filter value against the min,max values of the column(s) present in that carbondata file. This pruning enhances query performance significantly. |
 | carbon.dynamical.location.scheduler.timeout | 5 | CarbonData has its own scheduling algorithm to suggest to Spark on how many tasks needs to be launched and how much work each task need to do in a Spark cluster for any query on CarbonData. To determine the number of tasks that can be scheduled, knowing the count of active executors is necessary. When dynamic allocation is enabled on a YARN based spark cluster, executor processes are shutdown if no request is received for a particular amount of time. The executors are brought up when the requet is received again. This configuration specifies the maximum time (unit in seconds) the carbon scheduler can wait for executor to be active. Minimum value is 5 sec and maximum value is 15 sec.**NOTE: **Waiting for longer time leads to slow query response time.Moreover it might be possible that YARN is not able to start the executors and waiting is not beneficial. |

The data load operation status would depend on the configuration in ***carbon.bad.records.action***. |
 | carbon.options.bad.records.logger.enable  | To enable or disable bad record logger.                      |
 | carbon.options.bad.records.action         | This property can have four types of actions for bad records FORCE, REDIRECT, IGNORE and FAIL. If set to FORCE then it auto-corrects the data by storing the bad records as NULL. If set to REDIRECT then bad records are written to the raw CSV instead of being loaded. If set to IGNORE then bad records are neither loaded nor written to the raw CSV. If set to FAIL then data loading fails if any bad records are found. |
 | carbon.options.is.empty.data.bad.record   | If false, then empty ("" or '' or ,,) data will not be considered as bad record and vice versa. |
 | carbon.options.batch.sort.size.inmb       | Size of batch data to keep in memory, as a thumb rule it supposed to be less than 45% of sort.inmemory.size.inmb otherwise it may spill intermediate data to disk. |
-| carbon.options.single.pass                | Single Pass Loading enables single job to finish data loading with dictionary generation on the fly. It enhances performance in the scenarios where the subsequent data loading after initial load involves fewer incremental updates on the dictionary. This option specifies whether to use single pass for loading data or not. By default this option is set to FALSE. **NOTE:** Enabling this starts a new dictionary server to handle dictionary generation requests during data loading. Without this option, the input csv files will have to read twice.Once while dictionary generation and persisting to the dictionary files.second when the data loading need to convert the input data into carbondata format.Enabling this optimizes the optimizes to read the input data only once there by reducing IO and hence over all data loading time.If concurrent data loading needs to be supported, consider tuning ***dictionary.worker.threads***.Port on which the dictio
 nary server need to listen on can be configured using the configuration ***carbon.dictionary.server.port***. |

 | carbon.options.bad.record.path            | Specifies the HDFS path where bad records needs to be stored. |
 | carbon.custom.block.distribution          | Specifies whether to use the Spark or Carbon block distribution feature.**NOTE: **Refer to [Query Configuration](#query-configuration)#carbon.custom.block.distribution for more details on CarbonData scheduler. |
 | enable.unsafe.sort                        | Specifies whether to use unsafe sort during data loading. Unsafe sort reduces the garbage collection during data load operation, resulting in better performance. |
