Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3972) Support using multiple reducer for fetching order by results
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 01:23:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3972?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13569944#comment-13569944

Navis commented on HIVE-3972:
-----------------------------

Top-K optimization is already on HIVE-3562 and seemed orthogonal with this issue. And top-k
will make this further less useful.
The reason why I made this is that there are so many statements like 'hive is quite inefficient
handling order by cause its ran by single reducer' and I just hate hear that. This is not
important issue but can be a start point for other optimization exploiting ordered traits
from multiple bucket files.

Added configuration means number of reducer for lastly order-by MR stage. -1 means it will
be decided by usual calculation. 0 means disabling this.

> Queries for fetching results which have lastly "order by" clause make final MR run with
single reducer, which can be too much. For example, 
> {code}
> select value, sum(key) as sum from src group by value order by sum;
> {code}
> If number of reducer is reasonable, multiple result files could be merged into single
sorted stream in the fetcher level.
