Release Note:Introduced "EXPLAIN" plan for Hive.
Adding explain plan for queries in hive.
The current proposal is to support something like:
This will output the following:
Abstract Syntax Tree:
Number of Stages:
Dependencies between Stages:
Plan for each stage:
If EXTENDED keyword is used then much more information will be emitted where as without that keyword only logical information will be emitted.
e.g. In case of a group by query
SELECT T.c1, count(1) FROM T GROUP BY T.c1;
The explain plan itself has two stages
Stage1 and Stage2
Stage1 will have the plan for generating the partial aggregates
and Stage2 will have the plan for generating the complete aggregates.
I also plan to convert the parse and semantic analysis tests so that they use this for finding differences in the plan instead of the programmatic plan dumps that we are using today (tests/queries/positive).
