Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-8136) Reduce table locking
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2015 04:08:34 GMT


Brock Noland commented on HIVE-8136:

{{ADDCLUSTERSORTCOLUMN }} is not used by many people so there isn't much benefit there.

I was suggestion that the following:

{{alter table add partition}}
{{alter table [part...] set location}}

may not need an exclusive lock. Can you share why we need a lock when adding a partition?

> 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.
