             Summary: Add option to distribute partition keys in CTAS
                 Key: DRILL-3381
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-3381
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Steven Phillips


The current implementation does not redistribute, which would tend to result in a lot of extra
files. Specifically, the number of files will be larger by a factor equal to the number of
fragments in the final stage of the query. On even a moderately sized cluster, this number
could easily be in the thousands, so a table with a 100 different partitions would end up
with hundreds of thousands of files.

To allow a workaround for this situation, we should add an option to include an extra distribution,
so that all the rows for any given partition are written from the same writer.
