Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3086) Skewed Join Optimization

@Alex, I'm sorry but your question is not very clear. Can you please give the exact schema,
query and the skewed keys that you have in mind. Here are some comments based on what I understood

2. If a table is small, we have map-join to handle that.
3. We are not doing any pre-partioning.
