Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-4789: Fix slow metadata loading due to inconsistent paths.
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2017 19:23:05 GMT
Hello Bharath Vissapragada,

I'd like you to reexamine a change.  Please visit

to look at the new patch set (#4).

Change subject: IMPALA-4789: Fix slow metadata loading due to inconsistent paths.

IMPALA-4789: Fix slow metadata loading due to inconsistent paths.

The fix for IMPALA-4172/IMPALA-3653 introduced a performance
regression for loading tables that have many partitions with:
1. Inconsistent HDFS path qualification or
2. A custom location (not under the table root dir)

For the first issue consider a table whose root path is at
A partition with an unqualified location '/warehouse/tbl/p=1'
will not be recognized as being a descendant of the table root
dir by FileSystemUtil.isDescendentPath() because of how
Path.equals() behaves, even if 'hdfs://localhost:8020' is the
default filesystem. Such partitions are incorrectly recognized
as having a custom location and are loaded separately.

There were two performance issues:
1. The code for loading the files/blocks of partitions with
   truly custom locations was inefficient with an O(N^2)
   loop for determining the target partitions.
2. Each partition that is incorrectly identified as having
   a custom path (e.g. due to inconsistent qualification),
   is going to have its files/blocks loaded twice. Once
   when the table root path is processed, and once when the
   'custom' partition is processed.

This patch fixes the detection of partitions with custom
locations, and improves the speed of loading partitions
with custom locations.
