Connecting Qlik to Cloudera Hive


I have a connection from Qlikview to Apache Hive in Cloudera.

It's an ODBC connecion and works well.

The data is loaded into QV model via editor scripts.

Now I am working with Hive tables with 2 million rows, but my idea is to work with historical information

this historical can have more than 500 millions rows. I would like to know if I can have problems with this amount

of information. I know that I need a big amount of RAM, but I would like to know the best way to work in this kind

of situations. I want on-line explorations over 100 millions rows.

- Do I need to do an aggregation in Hive

- Is useful to work with Direct Query in this case?

- Is good ODBC connector?, are there other options?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Juanvg1972,

I am trying to connect Qlikview to Apache Hive . It will hep if you can send across the exact location or source from where i can download the Apache hive connector for qlikview.

It will also help if you can send across any documentation if you have any.
