-Re: best way to load millions of gzip files in hdfs to one table in hive?
1. create table and put files under the table dir
2. create external table and point it to files dir
3. if files are small then I recomend to create new set of files using
simple MR program and specifying number of reduce tasks. Goal is to make
files size > hdfs block size (it safes NN memory and read will be faster)
