Subject Re: Want to improve the performance for execution of Hive Jobs.

I am no expert on sqoop so i may be wrong but importing 30*0.5M records
(table by table) is a huge operation. I would rather prefer just dump and
import using hive cli (sqoop is good choice too but i dont know the

if you are doing so many joins then its good to be on hadoop cluster
instead of the single machine. If you have a 10 node cluster then it should
certainly improve your query performance.

also you may want to take a look at different kind of joins available to
you (mapjoins, bucketedmapjoins, skewed joins etc) cause each join comes up
with its own optimized approach.

the options i said in previous mail are part of job conf submitted to
hadoop. on hive cli we just set them on command line or through hiverc
