Hive >> mail # user >> delay before query starts processing

Re: delay before query starts processing
set hive.optimize.s3.query=true seems to help. But I'm surprised, because
the information I can find online about that config suggests that it is
related to tables with a large number of partitions. I have a lot of files,
but only one partition. But it seems to help anyway.

Thanks for the logging tip. I do want to know what it is doing, so this
should be helpful.
