Subject Re: Impala compute incremental stats and insert speed becomes slowly when the partitions and the amount of data is larger
Date Thu, 31 Mar 2016 15:55:17 GMT

How many columns do you have? How many impalad nodes are there? How much
memory is your catalog configured to run with?

Incremental stats are expensive to store in the catalog, and may be
expensive to distribute to the impalads.
recommends fewer than 30,000 partitions. Also, "compute stats" without
 "incremental" may be something worth trying.
