Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6469) skipTrash option in hive command line
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2014 21:20:14 GMT

Xuefu Zhang commented on HIVE-6469:
-----------------------------------

It might be better and easier to provide a global configuration property for this. If any
HiveSever2 instance doesn't want to keep it in trash, than turn the flag on.

> 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 data.
> 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.
