What is hbase export sequence file terminated by for hive?

Super Guru

I am running hbase export table to HDFS which I want to run a hive query on.

I do this as export:

bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.Export table_name file:///tmp/db_dump/

Now I want to create a hive external table. Does anyone have a example? I need to build the correct hive create table statement. Also what is the fields terminated by? this is most important for me.

Re: What is hbase export sequence file terminated by for hive?

HBase exports are in a sequence file format. You don't need to specify the field and line terminations with a sequence file. Have you tried creating the table using "STORED AS SEQUENCEFILE" with the location of the HBase export?

Another option is to use something like http://www.exmachinatech.net/projects/forqlift/ to convert the sequence file to text.

Hi,

how did it work for you?

Re: What is hbase export sequence file terminated by for hive?

Hi Michael, I had dumped HBASE data using native Export Utility. But when I try to create a hive table on top of it with "STORED AS SEQUENCEFILE", table gets created. But I am not able to query that table. I keep getting an error, I will paste below
