Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-4283) Group By statement truncating BIGINTs
Date Sun, 15 Oct 2017 08:49:00 GMT


Ethan Wang commented on PHOENIX-4283:

Thanks [~jamestaylor] for the direction. It turns out, as you directed, between
and rs.getValue(), a byte array operation mistakenly cutting a serialized DECIMAL ImmutableBytesWritable
from 11B to 8B, dropping 3B in the tail, which responsible for 6 last digits data loss. This
cut-off happened at PLong.coerceBytes() when it try to "Decrease size of TIMESTAMP to size
of LONG and continue coerce".

As for details, here is what happened (correct me). In the case of a nested group by, at very
beginning the subquery (select A, C from table grouby A, C) as a whole is returned from server
as a tuple. Here as "A" is a CoercedExpression, it first gets converted it to its child, ProjectedColumnExpression.
This converts A from BIGINT to DECIMAL which is then serialized into a byte array("so that
it is binary comparable"). That's when the 8B BigDecimal becomes a 11B byte array.

This byte array gets passed along to the moment when user calls rs.getValue, "A" as a RowKeyColoumnExpression
gets evaluated, that's where this serialized DECIMAL is converted back to BIGINT. during this
converting, PLong overrides coerceBytes() and injected a cut-off there. In this cut-off, anything
that is larger than Bytes.SIZEOF_LONG (which is 8B) will be reduce to first 8B. Therefore
the last 3B is lost. So in summary:

Server -> BIGINT 8B ->  BIGDECIMAL byte[] 11B -> BIGINT 8B

Let me know your thoughts [~jamestaylor] then I'd like to discuss a thought for a patch.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 4.11.0
>            Reporter: Steven Sadowski
>            Assignee: Ethan Wang
>             Fix For: 4.12.1
> *Versions:*
> Phoenix 4.11.0
> HBase: 1.3.1
> (Amazon EMR: 5.8.0)
> *Steps to reproduce:*
> 1. From the `` client setup the following table:
> {code:sql}
> CREATE TABLE test_table (
> );
> UPSERT INTO test_table(a,c) VALUES(4444444444444444444, 5555555555555555555);
> SELECT a FROM (SELECT a, c FROM test_table GROUP BY a, c) GROUP BY a, c;
> {code}
> *Expected Result:*
> {code:sql}
> +----------------------+
> |          A           |
> +----------------------+
> | 4444444444444444444  |
> +----------------------+
> {code}
> *Actual Result:*
> {code:sql}
> +----------------------+
> |          A           |
> +----------------------+
> | 4444444444444000000  |
> +----------------------+
> {code}
> *Comments:*
> Having the two Group By statements together seems to truncate the last 6 or so digits
of the final result. Removing the outer (or either) group by will produce the correct result.
> Please fix the Group by statement to not truncate the outer result's value.
