> Currently, the HiveHBaseTableInputFormat only supports running a single scan. This can
be less efficient than running multiple disjoint scans in certain cases, particularly when
using a composite row key. For instance, given a row key schema of:
> {code}
> struct<bucket int, time timestamp>
> {code}
> if one wants to push down the predicate:
> {code}
> bucket IN (1, 10, 100) AND timestamp >= 1408333927 AND timestamp < 1408506670
> {code}
> it's much more efficient to run a scan for each bucket over the time range (particularly
if there's a large amount of data per day). With a single scan, the MR job has to process
the data for all time for buckets in between 1 and 100.
> hive should allow HBaseKeyFactory's to decompose a predicate into one or more scans in
order to take advantage of this fact.
