Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-1293) --hive-import causes --target-dir and --warehouse-dir to not be respected, nor --delete-target-dir
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2014 12:06:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-1293?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13950615#comment-13950615

Hari Sekhon commented on SQOOP-1293:
------------------------------------

Yes the staging and then moving under warehouse is as I thought, thanks for confirming that.

I think it would be an improvement to make those switches respected in terms of retaining
the data in the desired location, basically just skipping the move under warehouse action,
or make the behaviour clearer with warnings that those switches won't be respected.

Can you please clarify that last statement, I did an import via HCatalog using the switches
{noformat}--hcatalog-create-table --hcatalog-table counterparty{noformat}
but the result is pretty much the same, fully managed hive table inside warehouse dir, except
for some reason it generated the files as RCfiles, which was not intended.

How about adding an --hive-external-table option to skip the table move under warehouse after
import and mark the table external?

That switch could enable a behaviour to allow the switches for directory and delete to be
respected.

Right now I've gone back to a sqoop import for data and then a separate sqoop create-hive-table
for the metadata and then an alter table on the location metadata location property which
is what we used to do at my last company.

Thanks

Hari

> Hi,
> I'm importing a table from SQL Server 2012 and am using --hive-import to create the metadata
automatically, but am finding that it causes --target-dir and --warehouse-dir to not be respected,
nor --delete-target-dir.
> sqoop import --connect "jdbc:sqlserver://x.x.x.x:1533;database=MyDatabase" --username
omitted --password omitted --driver com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver --table "cube.DimCounterParty"
--split-by CounterpartyKey --hive-import --target-dir /MyDatabase/CounterParty --delete-target-dir
> (fyi I'm using --driver to work around bug SQOOP-1292)
> So I tried --warehouse-dir in case it needed that instead of --target-dir
> sqoop import --connect "jdbc:sqlserver://x.x.x.x:1533;database=MyDatabase" --username
omitted --password omitted --driver com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver --table "cube.DimCounterParty"
--split-by CounterpartyKey --hive-import --warehouse-dir /MyDatabase/CounterParty --delete-target-dir
> but in both cases it ingested the data to /apps/hive/warehouse/cube.db/dimcounterparty.
> What's also strange is that it created the directory specified for --warehouse-dir but
then didn't appear to place the data in it.
> I wanted to use --delete-target-dir to replace the whole table each time for this test
since the source table is only ~650,000 rows and 185MB.
> What I've found is that on top of ingesting in to /apps/hive/warehouse/cube.db/dimcounterparty
by disregarding --delete-target-dir it is causing the table volume to grow cumulatively for
each run, such that after a few runs the {noformat}select count(*){noformat} on the table
now shows 5,546,661 rows instead of 650,000.
> Here is the the hive warehouse directory on HDFS where you can see the accumulation of
the data:

> {noformat}
> Is this a bug that it doesn't respect --target-dir or at least --warehouse-dir?
> This highlights another issue that this should be more intuitive and/or {noformat}sqoop
import --help{noformat} should make it easier to see what options are (not) compatible, or
it should specify in the output at job initiation time where switches will be disregarded,
such as it does when using {noformat}--hive-<option>{noformat} without {noformat}--hive-import{noformat}
> In my last place I recall using sqoop create-hive-table to generate the metadata after
import and then editing the table location metadata. It would be a lot better if we could
fix the behaviour of --hive-import to not require such a multi-step workaround.
