Re: joining user sessions
Hi,

If one of your tables are small enough then you can go in for map side joins, which actually distributes the smaller table contents into the distributed cache and then perform the join which is much faster compared to normal reduce side joins.

To enable map side joins, before executing join query set the following property
hive> hive.auto.convert.join=true;

Subject: joining user sessions

hello,

for all the log files i have i log the session id and user cookie. now
i need to seperate certain items of certain users, so i need to join
all my data to a global cookike table.

what are some common practices doing this? just put it in a table and
join? or maybe keep them in some sort of in memory cache?

and ideas / recomendations greatly appreciated.

best regards,
