Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-3288) Incremental import's upper bound ignores session time zone in Oracle
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2018 15:51:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-3288?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16370164#comment-16370164

Attila Szabo commented on SQOOP-3288:


Please link the review board as well!

Next time please do not forgot to fill out the fix version (it's incredible useful when someone
grooming these things for a release !!! )

Have you considered the usage of SYSTIMESTAMP? AFAIK it's a timezone aware timestamp.

> At the moment we're using [{{SELECT SYSDATE FROM dual}}|https://github.com/apache/sqoop/blob/3153c3610da7e5db388bfb14f3681d308e9e89c6/src/java/org/apache/sqoop/manager/OracleManager.java#L652]
when getting current time from Oracle.
> SYSDATE returns the underlying operating system's current time, while CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
uses the session time zone. This could lead to problems during incremental imports *when Oracle's
time zone is different from the OS*.
> Consider the following scenario when Oracle is configured to {{+0:00}}, while the OS
is {{+5:00}}:
> ||Oracle time||OS time||Event||
> |2:00|7:00|{{sqoop import --last-value 1:00 ...}} => imports {{[1:00, 7:00)}}|
> |2:30|7:30|{{update ... set last_updated = current_timestamp ...}} => set to {{2:30}}
*Won't be imported!*|
> |3:00|8:00|{{sqoop import --last-value 7:00 ...}} => imports {{[7:00, 8:00)}}|
> This way records updated within 5 hours after the last sqoop import won't get imported.
> Please note, that the example above assumes, that the user/administrator who's updating
the Oracle table will use the current session time of Oracle when setting the "last updated"
column of the table.
> I think the solution is to use CURRENT_TIMESTAMP instead of SYSDATE. Other connection
managers, like MySQL or PostgreSQL are using that as well.
