Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6469) skipTrash option in hive command line
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 13:35:16 GMT


Xuefu Zhang commented on HIVE-6469:

Thanks for catching this, [~leftylev]. he config property definitely needs documentation.
 I think this should be an admin configuration. User's DDL documentation should mention how
drop table behavior is impacted by this admin property's value. Could you please update the
doc and I can give a quick review? Thanks.

> 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.
