Think Incremental with hive.

Submitted Jun 15, 2015

Hive is a data warehouse infrastructure over hadoop for summarization, query, and analysis of data.
We propose a incremental processing approach for hive.
This would optimise the data processing speeds upto ~70% .


Data is IP.
In the current day scenario, data processing at scale ,has become a necessity for every company and every system.
With scale comes challenges and need for optimisations. Incremental is one of it!

To process with scale, the de-facto tools used are MR, Hive ,Pig and Spark.
Hive holds a big chunk in these!

Running computations over the complete data every time would be very inconvenient and is inefficient way to process in many cases.
Instead computing the complete data, computing only the newly arrived data and then merging the result would be of a great use.

This approach would enable the processing to happen only the new feed into the system instead of re-processing the complete available data set.
Incremental read ,incremental joins and sidelines will be the main aspects of this approach.

Sideline of join failures for the data which hasn’t arrived yet while incremental read.
