Re: Loader partitioning on field
Thanks! Regarding 1), where there is a UDF in the filter step on a
partition field. The UDF is not first evaluated before and then the
result passed to the load function?

A separate question: In a LoadFunc, is there a way to get a reference
to the logical query plan?

Thanks again.
