Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2845) Add support for index joins in Hive
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2012 05:12:26 GMT


Srinivasan Sembakkam Rajivelu commented on HIVE-2845:

Could you please explain in which use case this will be useful. Because I feel that there
is a space overhead for storing the index is also there. 

And there is already a map join optimization implemented in Hive,

So this index creation will be helpful do u think??

> Hive supports indexes, which are used for filters currently.
> It would be very useful to add support for index-based joins in Hive.
> If 2 tables A and B are being joined, and an index exists on the join key of A,
> B can be scanned (by the mappers), and for each row in B, a lookup for the corresponding
row in A can be performed.
> This can be very useful for some usecases.
