> CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS uses inefficient way to check if table exists.
> It uses Hive.java's getTablesByPattern(...) to check if table exists. It involves regular
expression and eventually database join. Very efficient. It can cause database lock time increase
and hurt db performance if a lot of such commands hit database.
> The suggested approach is to use getTable(...) since we know tablename already
