Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4160) Vectorized Query Execution in Hive
Date Sat, 05 Oct 2013 10:47:52 GMT


Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-4160:

Put it in Design Docs ( until
it's released.  Later you can move it into the User Docs with a note about which release introduces
it.  You can either change the file's location in the hierarchy or leave it in place and just
link to it from the User Docs section.

When it goes into User Docs, you have some choices.  Does it belong on the Home page or in
the Language Manual?  If in the Language Manual, do you want it under DML or should it be
a stand-alone doc?  That depends on what you write and how you want readers to find the doc.
 You can always add links from other docs to make sure people find it.

Here's the Language Manual:

Of course configuration goes here, perhaps in a subsection under Query Execution:
 I suggest you make a section in your design doc that's formatted to match the configuration
doc, so when the time comes you can just cut & paste.

> The Hive query execution engine currently processes one row at a time. A single row of
data goes through all the operators before the next row can be processed. This mode of processing
is very inefficient in terms of CPU usage. Research has demonstrated that this yields very
low instructions per cycle [MonetDB X100]. Also currently Hive heavily relies on lazy deserialization
and data columns go through a layer of object inspectors that identify column type, deserialize
data and determine appropriate expression routines in the inner loop. These layers of virtual
method calls further slow down the processing. 
> This work will add support for vectorized query execution to Hive, where, instead of
individual rows, batches of about a thousand rows at a time are processed. Each column in
the batch is represented as a vector of a primitive data type. The inner loop of execution
scans these vectors very fast, avoiding method calls, deserialization, unnecessary if-then-else,
etc. This substantially reduces CPU time used, and gives excellent instructions per cycle
(i.e. improved processor pipeline utilization). See the attached design specification for
more details.
