Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1361) table/partition level statistics
Date Tue, 22 Jun 2010 23:22:54 GMT


Ning Zhang commented on HIVE-1361:

Some comments from internal design review:
 - The ANALYZE TABLE command should be integrated with the data replication hook. When an
existing table/partition is analyzed, a new WriteEntity should be generated to make metadata
replication work. 
 - Investigate JDO on top of HBase integration. If JDO works on HBase, we could just use JDO
to update column stats as well. 
 - ANALYZE TABLE partition (<partition_spec>) should support "dynamic-partition-style"
partition specification. This means the if there are 2 partition columns ds, hr, we can do
analyze table partition(ds = '2010-06-01', hr) to analyze all hr sub-partitions under ds='2010-06-01'.

> At the first step, we gather table-level stats for non-partitioned table and partition-level
stats for partitioned table. Future work could extend the table level stats to partitioned
table as well. 
> There are 3 major milestones in this subtask: 
>  1) extend the insert statement to gather table/partition level stats on-the-fly.
>  2) extend metastore API to support storing and retrieving stats for a particular table/partition.

>  3) add an ANALYZE TABLE [PARTITION] statement in Hive QL to gather stats for existing
> The proposed stats are:
> Partition-level stats: 
>   - number of rows
>   - total size in bytes
>   - number of files
>   - max, min, average row sizes
>   - max, min, average file sizes
> Table-level stats in addition to partition level stats:
>   - number of partitions
