mail list for record purpose:

> y, floor(1000*rand()) as z from (select * from maprfs.tdunning.foo) a limit

> On this page, https://drill.apache.org/docs/math-and-trig/, the rand
> function is described and random() is not. But it appears that rand()
> delivers a constant instead (although a different constant each time the
> query is run) and it appears that random() delivers the same value when
> used multiple times in each returned value.
> This seems very, very wrong.
> The fault does not seem to be related to my querying a table:
> 0: jdbc:drill:> select rand(), random(), random() from (values (1),(2),(3))
> x;

> For reference, postgres doesn't have rand() and does the right thing with
> random().
