When Compaction process runs, it will create base directory.

at a minimum you need hive.compactor.initiator.on<>=true
and hive.compactor.worker.threads<>>0

Also, see
on how to trigger compaction manually.

Subject: hive transaction strange behaviour

I have enable the hive transaction and able to see the delta files created for some of the
partition but i dont not see any base file created<> seems strange
to me seeing so many delta files without any base file.
Could somebody let me know when Base file created.
