Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6664) Vectorized variance computation differs from row mode computation.
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2014 21:24:46 GMT


Jitendra Nath Pandey commented on HIVE-6664:

I have committed this to trunk.

[~rhbutani] This bug affects hive-0.13 and causes different results than row-mode execution.
This should be fixed in branch-0.13 as well.

stddev_samp(ss_sales_price) from store_sales.
> The reason for the difference is that row mode converts the decimal value to double upfront
to calculate sum of values, when computing variance. But the vector mode performs local aggregate
sum as decimal and converts into double only at flush.
