Subject [jira] Updated: (HIVE-558) describe extended table/partition output is cryptic
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 19:48:17 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-558?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Thiruvel Thirumoolan updated HIVE-558:
--------------------------------------

    Attachment: HIVE-558_PrelimPatch.patch
                SampleOutputDescribe.txt

Have a initial patch. Wrote a MetaDataFormatUtils class which formats table information. This
seemed better than the earlier approach I had. The output on a describe & describe extended
are attached.

Please let me know your thoughts on the approach and suggestions if any.

> describe extended table prints out the Thrift metadata object directly. The information
from it is not easy to read or parse. Output should be easily read and can be simple parsed
to get table location etc by programs.
