Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-8136) Reduce table locking
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2015 02:41:35 GMT


Ferdinand Xu commented on HIVE-8136:

Hi [~brocknoland], I agree with you that an exclusive lock is a must for altering table structure.
I think ADDCLUSTERSORTCOLUMN can use shared lock instead. Please see my previous comments
for details.

> When using ZK for concurrency control, some statements require an exclusive table lock
when they are atomic. Such as setting a tables location.
> This JIRA is to analyze the scope of statements like ALTER TABLE and see if we can reduce
the locking required.
