Review request for hive.

Bugs: HIVE-7669

Repository: hive-git


The source table has 600 Million rows and it has a String column "l_shipinstruct" which has
4 unique values. (Ie. these 4 values are repeated across the 600 million rows)

We are sorting it based on this string column "l_shipinstruct" as shown in the below HiveQL
with the following parameters. 
set hive.optimize.sampling.orderby=true;
set hive.optimize.sampling.orderby.number=10000000;
set hive.optimize.sampling.orderby.percent=0.1f;

insert overwrite table lineitem_temp_report 
  l_orderkey, l_partkey, l_suppkey, l_linenumber, l_quantity, l_extendedprice, l_discount,
l_tax, l_returnflag, l_linestatus, l_shipdate, l_commitdate, l_receiptdate, l_shipinstruct,
l_shipmode, l_comment
order by l_shipinstruct;
