> analyze commands allows us to collect statistics on existing tables/partitions. It works
great but might be slow since it scans all files.
> There are 2 ways to speed it up:
> 1. collect stats without file scan. It may not collect all stats but good and fast enough
for use case. HIVE-3917 addresses it
> 2. collect stats via partial file scan. It doesn't scan all content of files but part
of it to get file metadata. some examples are
for RCFile, ORC ( HIVE-3874 ) and HFile of Hbase
> This jira is targeted to address the #2. More specifically RCFile format.
