Subject Re: January 2016 Report

Hi Guys,

Here is the draft Jan 2016 report for review. Please feel free to comments.


Apache HAWQ is a Hadoop native SQL query engine that combines the key
technological advantages of MPP database with the scalability and
convenience of Hadoop. HAWQ reads data from and writes data to HDFS
natively.  HAWQ delivers industry-leading performance and linear
scalability. It provides users the tools to confidently and successfully
interact with petabyte range data sets. HAWQ provides users with a complete,
standards compliant SQL interface.

HAWQ has been incubating since 2015-09-04.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Produce our first Apache Release
  2. Expand the community, increase dev list activity and adding new
  3. Infrastructure migration: create Jenkins projects that build HAWQ
     binary, source tarballs and docker images, and run feature tests
     including at least installcheck-good tests for each commit (HAWQ-127).

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  Everything seems to be smooth, nothing urgent at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  1. One HAWQ Nest community meeting (topic: Data Federation with Apache
HAWQ Using the PXF Extension Framework)
     Video: http://bit.ly/HAWQNest1217
Slides: http://bit.ly/HAWQNest1217ss
  2. The community shows increasing activities. In Nov, there have
     been 494 messages on dev@/user@, compared with 459 messages in Oct.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. Main features/improvements added include:
     a) Improve recovery performance during some exception cases (HAWQ-241,
     b) Support writable external table executing on a specified number of
virtual segment (HAWQ-293)
     c) Improve HAWQ resource manager resource allocation algorithm and RPC
framework (HAWQ-234)
     d) Support fault injector in 2.0 (HAWQ-288)
     e) Clear some IP and build related issues (HAWQ-277, HAWQ-186,
HAWQ-184, HAWQ-228)
     f) Some key bug fixes for 2.0 Beta
  2. 2.0 Beta RC2 was proposed
  3. 98 new JIRAs filed, 59 resolved (In Nov 2015)
  4. 82 code commits (In Dec 2015)

Date of last release:

  We have not had a release yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
