Can any one faced issue while fetching data from external table. We are copying data from
upstream system into our storage S3. As part of copy, directories along with Zero bytes files
are been copied. Source File Format is in JSON format.  Below is Folder Hierarchy Structure

 DATE  -->  <Folder>

       <DAY=201803250> ---> Folder

                     1.json.gz  --> File


        <day=201803250> ---> Empty Zero Bytes Files.

Please find below screenshot


We are trying to create external table with JSON Serde.

ADD JAR wasb://<mailto:wasb://>;
 SET hive.mapred.supports.subdirectories=TRUE;
 SET mapred.input.dir.recursive=TRUE;
SET hive.merge.mapfiles = true;
SET hive.merge.mapredfiles = true;
SET hive.merge.tezfiles = true;

 CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE Ext_STG1(Col1 String, Col2 String, Col3 String) ROW FORMAT SERDE ''
WITH SERDEPROPERTIES ("case.insensitive" = "true", "ignore.malformed.json" = "true")
STORED AS TEXTFILE LOCATION 'wasb://<mailto:wasb://>'
TBLPROPERTIES ('serialization.null.format' = '');

select * from Ext_STG1 limit 100;

Above Query shows Empty Results.

When I delete Zero bytes files, then i could see data from select external table. Is this
expected behaviour. Is there any setting for ignoring Zero bytes files in hive external table
