Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3593) Output files of SMB join grow indefinitely
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 21:42:04 GMT


Kevin Wilfong commented on HIVE-3593:

Mildly related, if only one partition of the big table is used as input to the SMB join, there
is no need to prefix the file name with the partition spec.

> The output files of a SMB join are prefixed by the big table's partition spec that was
used to create them.  The length of the bucket number portion of the file name is updated
to be the same length as the length of the task ID.  Since the task ID is the name of the
file, this means that if the output of a SMB join is used as the big table of another SMB
join, the output files will increase by the size of the original partition spec.  Compound
this and the file size can grow indefinitely.
