Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-9692) Allocate only parquet selected columns in HiveStructConverter class
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2015 23:27:14 GMT
Sergio Peña created HIVE-9692:

             Summary: Allocate only parquet selected columns in HiveStructConverter class
                 Key: HIVE-9692
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Sergio Peña
            Assignee: Sergio Peña

HiveStructConverter class is where Hive converts parquet objects to hive writable objects
that will be later parsed by object inspectors. This class is allocating enough writable objects
as number of columns of the file schema.

ublic HiveStructConverter(final GroupType requestedSchema, final GroupType tableSchema, Map<String,
String> metadata) {
this.writables = new Writable[fileSchema.getFieldCount()];

This is always allocated even if we only select a specific number of columns. Let's say 2
columns from a table of 50 columns. 50 objects are allocated. Only 2 are used, and 48 are

We should be able to allocate only the requested number of columns in order to save memory
