Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7231) Improve ORC padding
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2014 00:47:24 GMT


Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-7231:

Woops, very sorry -- forgot to publish my second review, which requested clarification in
the description of hive.exec.orc.block.padding.tolerance in

+    // Define the tolerance for block padding. The total padded length will
+    // always be less than the specified percentage.

My comment:

bq.  Should mention that it's a percentage of stripe size, because "block padding" sounds
like percentage of block size.  Could also explain that block padding prevents stripes from
straddling blocks.

But this isn't a show stopper.

> Current ORC padding is not optimal because of fixed stripe sizes within block. The padding
overhead will be significant in some cases. Also padding percentage relative to stripe size
is not configurable.
