      Description

      By default Impala reads the files from table LOCATION 'hdfs_path' but not from the sub directories in that table LOCATION 'hdfs_path'.

      Example: If a table is created with location '/home/data/input/'

      and if the directory structure is as follows:
      /home/data/input/a.txt
      /home/data/input/b.txt
      /home/data/input/subdir1/x.txt
      /home/data/input/subdir2/y.txt

      then Impala can query from following files only
      /home/data/input/a.txt
      /home/data/input/b.txt

      Following files are not queried
      /home/data/input/subdir1/x.txt
      /home/data/input/subdir2/y.txt

      It seems recursive reading is not working.
