Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-6469) skipTrash option in hive command line
Date Thu, 20 Feb 2014 00:40:19 GMT
Jayesh created HIVE-6469:

             Summary: skipTrash option in hive command line
                 Key: HIVE-6469
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jayesh

hive drop table command deletes the data from HDFS warehouse and puts it into Trash.

Currently there is no way to provide flag to tell warehouse to skip trash while deleting table

This ticket is to add skipTrash feature in hive command-line, that looks as following. 

hive -e "drop table skipTrash testTable"

This would be good feature to add, so that user can specify when not to put data into trash
directory and thus not to fill hdfs space instead of relying on trash interval and policy
configuration to take care of disk filling issue.
