Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4393) Make the deleteData flag accessable from DropTable/Partition events
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 04:55:18 GMT


Morgan Phillips commented on HIVE-4393:

Yes, sorry.  To answer your question about how deleteData is related to the description; DFS
data is only deleted when partitions are dropped on internal tables with the deleteData flag
set.  Because I'm only trying to track drop partition events where data should be removed
from the DFS I need to have access to the deleteData flag from within the event listeners.

> On occasion, due to some error during a drop, information is removed from the metastore
but data, which should have been removed, remains intact on the DFS.  In order to log such
events via PreEvent and Event listeners a new method 'getDeleteData' should be added to (Pre)DropPartitionEvent
and (Pre)DropTableEvent which returns the deleteData flag's value.
