Subject Re: no data in external table
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 22:10:53 GMT

In the hbase table I do not see column qualifier, only family. 
For testing connection to hbase I also created a table using 

CREATE TABLE hbase_table_1(key int, value string) 
STORED BY 'org.apache.hadoop.hive.hbase.HBaseStorageHandler'
WITH SERDEPROPERTIES ("hbase.columns.mapping" = ":key,cf1:val")
TBLPROPERTIES ("" = "xyz");

I see xyz table in hbase. then I added a row in hbase using put 'xyz', 'row1', 'cf1', 'abc'

Then in hive I did: select * from hbase_table_1;
No results are returned, but scan xys in hbase returns 1 row.

This doesn't look right. The mapping should be of form COLUMN_FAMILY:COLUMN_QUALIFIER. In
this case it seems to be COLUMN_FAMILY:TYPE which is not right.

 tblproperties ("" = "myextrenaltable");

In tasktracker log I do not see anything relevant to hbase. In jobdetails page I see a few
successful jobs. in hive shell I see

Can you tell us how you created mapping for the existing table ?

In task log, do you see any connection attempt to HBase ?

I use hive-0.9.0 with hadoop-0.20.2 and hbase -0.92.1. I have created external table, mapping
it to an existing table in hbase. When I do "select * from myextrenaltable" it returns no
results, although scan in hbase shows data, and I do not see any errors in jobtracker log.

Any ideas how to debug this issue.
