Subject hive and hdfs location
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2012 05:24:52 GMT
Is there an easy/elegant way to query hive for a table's (and a
partition's) location in HDFS?

I'm aware that you can get the location using "describe extended
table_name" but it like to be able to query on just the location key.

If not, is there a way to do so using the mysql metastore db?

Ideally, I'd come out with something like:

hdfs://namenode:/user/hive/warehouse/database.db/table/partition_1/datafile

Thanks!
