注:文中某些地方由于 foxit 和 adobe 的bug,ti 会显示成 1,

如表格的第 5 行,na1vely 应是 natively,其实第 4 行的  transac1ons 也是,据说不影响阅读,就懒得修复了 ◠‿◠

4、Hive: 一个基于 hadoop 的 SQL 接口

5、SQL 覆盖范围: SQL 92 with Extensions 

6、Hive 中的数据抽象

7、Join:“I heard you should avoid joins…” 

• “Joins are evil” – Cal Henderson  – Joins should be avoided in online systems. • Joins are unavoidable in analytics.  – Making joins fast is the key design point. 

8、Hive 中的 Join 策略 

8.1  reduce-side join:Shuffle Joins in Map Reduce

8.2  map-side join:Broadcast Join

•  Star schemas use dimension tables small enough to fit in RAM.  •  Small tables held in memory by all nodes.  •  Single pass through the large table.  •  Used for star-schema type joins common in DW.

8.3  SMB join:When both are too large for memory

Observa1on 1: Sor1ng by the join key makes joins easy. All possible matches reside in the same area on disk. Observa1on 2: Hash bucke1ng a join key ensures all matching values reside on the same node. Equi-joins can then run with no shuffle.

注:在 mapreduce 中,几种常见的 join 方式以及示例代码:

9、控制 hive 中的数据位置 

• Bucketing:  – Hash partition values into a configurable number of buckets.  – Usually coupled with sorting.  • Skews:  – Split values out into separate files.  – Used when certain values are frequently seen.  • Replication Factor:  – Increase replication factor to accelerate reads.  – Controlled at the HDFS layer.  • Sorting:  – Sort the values within given columns.  – Greatly accelerates query when used with ORCFilefilter  pushdown. 

注:hive 本地化 mr,请参考:

10、hive 数据架构指南 

11、Hive 数据持久化的几种格式 

• Built-in Formats:  – ORCFile – RCFile – Avro  – Delimited Text  – Regular Expression  – S3 Logfile – Typed Bytes  • 3rd -Party Addons:  – JSON  – XML 

PS:Hive allows mixed format. 

• Use Case:  – Ingest data in a write-optimized format like JSON or delimited.  – Every night, run a batch job to convert to read-optimized ORCFile. 

12、ORCFile– Efficient Columnar Layout

12.1  ORCFile Advantages 

• High Compression  – Many tricks used out-of-the-box to ensure high compression rates.  – RLE, dictionary encoding, etc.  • High Performance  – Inline indexes record value ranges within blocks of ORCFiledata.  – Filter pushdown allows efficient scanning during precise queries.  • Flexible Data Model  – All Hive types including maps, structsand unions. 

12.2  High Compression with ORCFile

12.3  Some ORCFile Samples 

id int, timestamp timestamp, 
productsk int, storesk int, 
amount decimal, state string 
) STORED AS orc;

12.4  ORCFile Options and Defaults 

12.5  No Compression: Faster but Larger 

id int, timestamp timestamp, 
productsk int, storesk int, 
amount decimal, state string 
) STORED AS orc tblproperties ("orc.compress"="NONE");

12.6  Column Sorting to Facilitate Skipping 

id int, timestamp timestamp, 
productsk int, storesk int, 
amount decimal, state string 
) STORED AS orc; 
INSERT INTO sale AS SELECT * FROM staging SORT BY productsk; 
ORCFile skipping speeds queries like 
WHERE productsk = X, productsk IN (Y, Z);  

12.7 索引:Not Your Traditional Database 

• Traditional solution to all RDBMS problems:  – Put an index on it! 

• Doing this in Hadoop == #fail

 索引可以加快GROUP BY查询语句的执行速度。   Hive从0.80开始,提供了一个Bitmap位图索引,它主要适用于在一个给定的列中只有几个值的场景。详情见:

13、Going Fast in Hadoop

• Hadoop:  – Really good at coordinated sequential scans.  – No random I/O. Traditional index pretty much useless.  • Keys to speed in Hadoop:  – Sorting and skipping take the place of indexing.  – Minimizing data shuffle the other key consideration.  • Skipping data:  – Divide data among different files which can be pruned out.  – Partitions, buckets and skews.  – Skip records during scans using small embedded indexes.  – Automatic when you use ORCFileformat.  – Sort data ahead of time.  – Simplifies joins and skipping becomes more effective. 

13.1  Data Layout Considerations for Fast Hive 

13.2  Partitioning and Virtual Columns 

• Partitioning makes queries go fast.  • You will almost always use some sort of partitioning.  • When partitioning you will use 1 or more virtual  columns. 

# Notice how xdate and state are not “real” column names.

id int, amount decimal, ... 
) partitioned by (xdate string, state string);

• Virtual columns cause directories to be created in  HDFS.  – Files for that partition are stored within that subdirectory. 


13.3  Loading Data with Virtual Columns 

• By default at least one virtual column must be hardcoded. 

INSERT INTO sale (xdate=‘2013-03-01’, state=‘CA’) 
SELECT * FROM staging_table
WHERE xdate = ‘2013-03-01’ AND state = ‘CA’;

• You can load all partitions in one shot:  – set hive.exec.dynamic.partition.mode=nonstrict;  – Warning: You can easily overwhelm your cluster this way. 

set hive.exec.dynamic.partition.mode=nonstrict; 
INSERT INTO sale (xdate, state) 
SELECT * FROM staging_table;

13.4  You May Need to Re-Order Columns 

• Virtual columns must be last within the inserted data set.  • You can use the SELECT statement to re-order. 

INSERT INTO sale (xdate, state=‘CA’) 
id, amount, other_stuff, 
xdate, state 
FROM staging_table
WHERE state = ‘CA’;

13.5  Tune Split Size – Always 

• mapred.max.split.size and mapred.min.split.size • Hive processes data in chunks subject to these bounds. • min too large -> Too few mappers. • max too small -> Too many mappers. • Tune variables un6l mappers occupy: – All map slots if you own the cluster. – Reasonable number of map slots if you don’t. • Example: – set mapred.max.split.size=100000000; – set mapred.min.split.size=1000000; • Manual today, automa6c in future version of Hive. • You will need to set these for most queries. 


13.6  Tune io.sort.mb – Sometimes 

• Hive and Map/Reduce maintain some separate buffers. • If Hive maps need lots of local memory you may need to shrink map/reduce buffers. • If your maps spill, try it out. • Example: – set io.sort.mb=100;

13.7  Other Settings You Need 

• All the 6me: – set hive.op1mize.mapjoin.mapreduce=true; – set hive.op1mize.bucketmapjoin=true; – set hive.op1mize.bucketmapjoin.sortedmerge=true; – set; – set; – set; • When bucke6ng data: – set hive.enforce.bucke1ng=true; – set hive.enforce.sor1ng=true; • These and more are set by default in HDP 1.3. – Check for them in hive-site.xml – If not present, set them in your query script

• 防止 group by 数据倾斜

– hive.groupby.skewindata=true

• 增加reduce 的jvm内存,或者进行一些参数调优,如: -Xmx 1024m  

13.8  Check Your Settings 

• In Hive shell: 


14.1  Define optimized table 

txnid STRING,
txntime STRING,
givenname STRING,
lastname STRING,
postalcode STRING,
storeid STRING,
ind1 STRING,
productid STRING,
purchaseamount FLOAT,
creditcard STRING
SORTED BY (txnid)
STORED AS ORC tblproperties("orc.compress"="SNAPPY");

The part_dtfield is defined in the partition by clause and cannot be the same name as any other  fields. In this case, we will be performing a modification of txntimeto generate a partition key. The  cluster and sorted clauses contain the only key we intend to join the table on. We have stored as  ORCFilewith Snappy compression. 

14.2  Load Data Into Optimized Table

set hive.enforce.sorting=true;
set hive.enforce.bucketing=true;
set hive.exec.dynamic.partition=true;
set hive.exec.dynamic.partition.mode=nonstrict; 
set mapreduce.reduce.input.limit=-1;

FROM pos_staging
PARTITION (part_dt)
concat(year(txntime),month(txntime)) as part_dt
SORT BY productid;

We use this commend to load data from our staging table into our  optimized ORCFileformat. Note that we are using dynamic partitioning with  the projection of the txntimefield. This results in a MapReduce job that will  copy the staging data into ORCFileformat Hive managed table. 

14.3  Increase replication factor 

hadoop fs-setrep-R –w 5 /apps/hive/warehouse/fact_pos

Increase the replication factor for the high performance table.  This increases the chance for data locality. In this case, the  increase in replication factor is not for additional resiliency.  This is a trade-off of storage for performance.  In fact, to conserve space, you may choose to reduce the  replication factor for older data sets or even delete them  altogether. With the raw data in place and untouched, you can  always recreate the ORCFilehigh performance tables. Most  users place the steps in this example workflow into an Oozie job to automate the work. 

14.4  Enabling Short Circuit Read 

In hdfs-site.xml(or your custom Ambari settings for HDFS,  restart service after):


Short Circuit reads allow the mappers to bypass the overhead of opening a  port to the datanodeif the data is local. The permissions for the local  block files need to permit hdfsto read them (should be by default already)  See HDFS-2246 for more details. 

14.5  Execute your query

set hive.mapred.reduce.tasks.speculative.execution=false;
set io.sort.mb=300;
set mapreduce.reduce.input.limit=-1;

select productid, ROUND(SUM(purchaseamount),2) as total 
from fact_pos 
where part_dtbetween ‘201210’ and ‘201212’
group by productid 
order by total desc 
limit 100;

… OK 205353026.87 390792959.69 289702869.87 455942821.15 … 156492242.05 477042241.22 81402238.61 Time taken: 40.087 seconds, Fetched: 100 row(s) In the case above, we have a simple query executed to test out our table. We have some  example parameters set before our query. The good news is that most of the parameters  regarding join and engine optimizations are already set for you in Hive 0.11 (HDP). The  io.sort.mbis presented as an example of one of the tunable parameters you may want to  change for this particular SQL (note this value assumes 2-3GB JVMs for mappers). We are  also partition pruning for the holiday shopping season, Oct to Dec. 


• “explain extended” in front of your query.  • Sections:  – Abstract syntax tree – you can usually ignore this.  – Stage dependencies – dependencies and # of stages.  – Stage plans – important info on how Hive is running the job. 

16、Hive Fast Query Checklist

•Par11oned data along natural query boundaries (e.g. date).  •Minimized data shuffle by co-loca1ng the most commonly joined data.  •Took advantage of skews for high-frequency values.  •Enabled short-circuit read.  •Used ORCFile.  •Sorted columns to facilitate row skipping for common targeted queries.  •Verified query plan to ensure single scan through largest table.  •Checked the query plan to ensure par11on pruning is happening.  •Used at least one ON clause in every JOIN. 

一些调优方式请参考:深入学习《Programing Hive》:Tuning

17、For Even More Hive Performance

•Increased replica1on factor for frequently accessed data and dimensions.  •Tuned io.sort.mb to avoid spilling.  •Tuned mapred.max.split.size, mapred.min.split.size to ensure 1 mapper wave.  •Tuned mapred.reduce.tasks to an appropriate value based on map output.  •Checked jobtracker to ensure “row container” spilling does not occur.  •Gave extra memory for mapjoins like broadcast joins.  •Disabled orc.compress (file size will increase) and tuned •orc.row.index.stride.  •Ensured the job ran in a single wave of mappers.

18、Loading Data in Hive

• Sqoop – Data transfer from external RDBMS to Hive.  – Sqoop can load data directly to/from HCatalog.  • Hive LOAD  – Load files from HDFS or local filesystem.  – Format must agree with table format.  • Insert from query  – CREATE TABLE AS SELECT or INSERT INTO.  • WebHDFS+ WebHCat – Load data via REST APIs. 

19、Handling Semi-Structured Data

• Hive supports arrays, maps, structsand unions.  • SerDesmap JSON, XML and other formats natively  into Hive.

20、Hive Authorization

• Hive provides Users, Groups, Roles and Privileges  • Granular permissions on tables, DDL and DML  operations.  • Not designed for high security:  – On non-kerberizedcluster, up to the client to supply their user  name.  – Suitable for preventing accidental data loss. 


• HiveServer2 is a gateway / JDBC / ODBC endpoint  Hive clients can talk to.  • Supports secure and non-secure clusters.  • DoAssupport allows Hive query to run as the  requester.  • (Coming Soon) LDAP authentication. 

22、Roadmap to 100x Faster

22.1  Phase 1 Improvements 

Path to Making Hive 100x Faster 

(1)Join Optimizations 

• Performance Improvements in Hive 0.11:  • New Join Types added or improved in Hive 0.11:  – In-memory Hash Join: Fast for fact-to-dimension joins.  – Sort-Merge-Bucket Join: Scalable for large-table to large-table  joins.  • More Efficient Query Plan Generation  – Joins done in-memory when possible, saving map-reduce steps.  – Combine map/reduce jobs when GROUP BY and ORDER BY use  the same key.  • More Than 30x Performance Improvement for Star  Schema Join 

(2)Star Schema Join Improvements in 0.11
