> Th current behavior of hive metastore during a "drop table <table_name>" command
is to delete the data from HDFS warehouse and put it into Trash.
> Currently there is no way to provide a flag to tell the warehouse to skip trash while
deleting table data.
> This ticket is to add skipTrash configuration "" , which
when set to true, will skipTrash while dropping table data from hdfs warehouse. This will
be set to false by default to keep current behavior.
> This would be good feature to add, so that an admin of the cluster can specify when not
to put data into the trash directory (eg. in a dev environment) and thus not to fill hdfs
space instead of relying on trash interval and policy configuration to take care of disk filling
