Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7100) Users of hive should be able to specify skipTrash when dropping tables.
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2015 22:59:05 GMT


Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-7100:

The syntax for PURGE in a drop partition statement is under discussion in HIVE-9086.  The
question is whether PURGE belongs after or before the partition specification.  I'm bringing
it up here because this jira has more watchers who might want to voice their opinions.

> Users of our clusters are often running up against their quota limits because of Hive
tables. When they drop tables, they have to then manually delete the files from HDFS using
skipTrash. This is cumbersome and unnecessary. We should enable users to skipTrash directly
when dropping tables.
> We should also be able to provide this functionality without polluting SQL syntax.
