Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1900) a mapper should be able to span multiple partitions
Date Fri, 07 Jan 2011 22:03:48 GMT


Namit Jain commented on HIVE-1900:

1. Why should it be any different than sort-merge join ?
    ExecMapper needs to keep track of the current file, and then change the partitioning columns
whenever the file changes
2. Why should it matter ?
3. Why should it matter ?

> Currently, a  mapper only spans a single partition which creates a problem in the presence
of many

> If the plan is the same, a mapper should be able to span files across multiple partitions
