Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-707) add group_concat
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2009 18:22:14 GMT


Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-707:

Found the JIRA...

Since group by is done in the reducer you could just use the trick that is used in 

distribute by x sort by y 

when we do MAP and REDUCE operators. By setting up reduce sink in a similar way you  would
be able to ensure that each reducer gets the rows for a value of x in the sorted order of
y. You can look at how we generate plans for the transform operator and use the same strategy
in group by code.

That should work and of course in this case we have to turn of any map/side aggregation?
