As far as I know, Hive 0.7.1 does not automatically access indexes. Starting Hive 0.8, that'd
be possible.

See this JIRA ticket for details:

Subject: Hive index

Dear all, 

I am using HIVE 0.7.1 version that supports indexing table, let example 

i have hive table with following structure: 

1. create table pv_user (pageid int, stirng age); 
2. create index table: 
create index pv_user_index on table pv_user(pageid) as 'compact' with deffered build stored
3. i queries original table 

+) select pageid, count(1) from pv_user group by pageid. 

rewrite query on index table: 
+) select pageid, size(`_offsets`) from ` default__pv_user_pv_user_index__ ` 

i have question, current hive version have rewriting module to automatically convert original
query to rewrite query yet? i means i type query "select pageid , count(1) from pv_user group
by pageid" but it takes advantage indexed table. 

Thanks for your support.
