Subject Re: Hive Cli ORC table read error with limit option
Date Tue, 19 Apr 2016 00:56:03 GMT
Hi Biswajit

You might need patch from

Can you apply this patch to your hive build and see if it solves the issue? (recommended)

Alternatively, you can use “hive.exec.orc.split.strategy”=“BI” as workaround.
Its highly not recommended to use this config as it will disable split elimination
and may generate sub-optiomal splits resulting in less map-side parallelism.
This config is just provided as an workaround and is suitable when all orc files
are small (<less than stripe size or block size).

Hi All,

I seriously need help on this aspect. Any reference or pointer to troubleshoot or fix this,
could be helpful.

Apologies for the delay in response.

Below is the orcfiledump of the empty orc file from a broken partition.

$ hive --orcfiledump /hive/testdb.db/table_orc/year=2016/month=1/day=29/000000_0

I still not able to figure it out whats causing this odd behaviour?

Alternatively you can send orcfiledump output for the empty orc file from broken partition.

Could you attach the emtpy orc files from one of the broken partition somewhere? I can run
some tests on it to see why its happening.

Both the parameters are set to false by default.

hive> set hive.optimize.index.filter;
hive> set hive.orc.splits.include.file.footer;

>>>I suspect this might be related to having 0 row files in the buckets not
having any recorded schema.

yes there are few files with 0 row, but the query works with other partition (which has 0
row files). Out of 30 partition (for a month), 3-4 partition are having this issue. Even reload
of the data does not yield anything. Query works fine in MR now, but having issue in tez.

I suspect this might be related to having 0 row files in the buckets not
having any recorded schema.

You can also experiment with hive.optimize.index.filter=false, to see if
the zero row case is artificially produced via predicate push-down.

That shouldn't be a problem unless you've turned on
hive.orc.splits.include.file.footer=true (recommended to be false).

Your row-locations don't actually match any Apache source jar in my
builds, are there any other patches to consider?
