Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-2331) Snappy Compression Support in Sqoop-HCatalog
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2018 10:47:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-2331?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16598569#comment-16598569

Fero Szabo commented on SQOOP-2331:

Hi [~standon],

Sorry, I didn't have time to have a closer look at this and I'm not too familiar with HCat.
Anyway, if I understand you correctly, it's not clear how to verify whether the right compression
was used in hcat, right?

This forum topic might help us out here:


One of the replies mentions that the compression of a hive table can be checked with the describe
command... I'm not sure if it works, but worth a try. (You could then execute this hive command
from Java.)

both the options in the Sqoop future releases.
