Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-21376) Incompatible change in Hive bucket computation
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2019 20:13:00 GMT


Jesus Camacho Rodriguez commented on HIVE-21376:

That is correct. I believe the 3.0 -> 3.1 timestamp incompatibility is difficult to fix
as internal representation changed precisely to fix timezone related issues. I hope HIVE-20007
had gone in 3.0 as I initially thought, then incompatibility would be v1 vs v2 (modulo this
fix), but it did not make the cut on time. If bucketed data with those types has been written
in 3.0 using v2, a user should recreate those bucketed tables using a more recent Hive version.

> HIVE-20007 seems to have inadvertently changed the bucket hash code computation via
{{ObjectInspectorUtils.getBucketHashCodeOld()}} for the {{DATE}} and {{TIMESTAMP}} data
> {{DATE}} was previously computed using {{DateWritable}}, which uses {{daysSinceEpoch}}
as the hash code. It is now computed using {{DateWritableV2}}, which uses the hash code of
{{java.time.LocalDate}} (which is not days since epoch).
> {{TIMESTAMP}} was previous computed using {{TimestampWritable}} and now uses {{TimestampWritableV2}}.
They ostensibly use the same hash code computation, but there are two important differences:
>  # {{TimestampWritable}} rounds the number of milliseconds into the seconds portion of
the computation, but {{TimestampWritableV2}} does not.
>  # {{TimestampWritable}} gets the epoch time from {{java.sql.Timestamp}}, which returns
it relative to the JVM time zone, not UTC. {{TimestampWritableV2}} uses a {{LocalDateTime}}
relative to UTC.
> I was unable to get Hive 3.1 running in order to verify if this actually causes data
to be read or written incorrectly (there may be code above this library method which makes
things work correctly). However, if my understanding is correct, this means Hive 3.1 is both
forwards and backwards incompatible with bucketed tables using either of these data types.
It also indicates that Hive needs tests to verify that the hash code does not change between
