Subject Access to where clause in a FormatPlugin
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2016 02:59:47 GMT

I'm having a go at adding a format plugin to Drill and would like to be
able to access the where clause of a running query in order to skip through
a large data file (currently our data files are in 1 hour chunks and can be
hundreds of MBs).

In my use case the where clause would contain a "between" clause that I
could use to skip/filter rows based on a timestamp column.

I can't see anywhere in the various contexts that a format plugin has
access to that the query AST or something similar is held.

Is that something that drill could ever support?
