Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-417) Implement Indexing in Hive
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2010 14:22:55 GMT


Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-417:

Looked at the code and have some questions...

Can you explain how the metastore object model is laid out. It seems that the table names
of the index are stored in key value properties of the table that the index is created on.
Is that correct? Would it be better to put a key reference from the index table to the base
table instead (similar to what is done for partitions)?

Also, how would this be used to query the table? Can you give an example?

Is the idea here to select from the index an then pass the offsets to another query to look
up the table? An example or a test which shows the query on the base table would be useful.
