Define default request_pool in impalarc

Explorer
Hi, is it possible to define some set options, like REQUEST_POOL in ~/.impalarc? So that user doesn't need to execute "SET REQUEST_POOL=xxx" when start the impala-shell.

No you cannot.  That file is used to store impala-shell configuraiton settings (i.e. -k or kerberos) and not Impala session variables.

There is now a way to do this with .impalarc using the following:

 

[impala.query_options]
REQUEST_POOL=mypoolname
