Impala querying Hive partitions

 

Can we take advantage of Hive table partitions when querying with impala

 

Are there any issues or problems we might run into given this scenario.

 

We currently have partitioned hive tables... will we be missing anything if we dont convert to impala tables

Hi @ChineduLB ,

  There is no real difference between Impala and Hive tables - Impala and Hive should be able to read and write the same tables, including partitioned tables, etc.
