Hypertable is an open source project based on published best practices and our own experience in solving large-scale data-intensive tasks. Our goal is nothing. Modeled after Bigtable. ➢ Implemented in C++. ➢ Project Started in March ➢ Runs on top of HDFS. ➢ Thrift Interface for all popular languages. ○ Java. hypertable> create namespace “Tutorial”;. hypertable> use Tutorial;. create table. hypertable> CREATE TABLE QueryLogByUserID (Query.

Over time, Hypertable will break these tables into ranges and distribute them to what are known as Hyperatble processes. For example, the following query will not leverage the secondary indexes and will result int a full table scan:.

By convention, the row key is the URL with hypretable domain name reversed so that URLs from the same domain sort next to each other and the column qualifier is the hour in which the “hit” occurred.

The row key is formulated by zero-padding the UserID field out to nine digits and concatenating the QueryTime field.

To insert values, create a mutator and write the unique cell to the database. It reads the article column, tokenizes it, and populates the tutorrial column of the same table. All of the example queries show were run against a table with the following schema and loaded with products. Here’s a PHP snippet from the microblogging example.

The result set was fairly large cellsso let’s now try selecting just the queries that were issued by the user with ID during the hour of 5am. Now that we have created and opened the Tutorial namespace we can create tables within it. The following options are supported:. Remember that the row key is the concatenation of the user ID and the timestamp which is why we need to use the starts with hypertablr.

This page provides a brief overview of Hypertable, comparing it with a relational database, highlighting some of its unique features, and illustrating how it scales. This range migration process has the effect of balancing load across the entire cluster and opening up additional capacity. CommitInterval, which acts as a lower bound default is 50ms. Distributed filesystems such as HDFS can typically thtorial a small number of sync operations per second. The following is a link to the source code for this program.


This table includes the timestamp as the row key prefix which allows us to efficiently query data over a time interval.

To restrict the MapReduce to a specific row interval of the input table, a row range can be specified with the hypertable. Value indices index column value data and qualifier indices index column qualifier data. Otherwise the cell already existed with a different value. Now load the compressed Wikipedia dump file directly into the wikipedia table by issuing the following HQL commands:.

You cannot mix-and-match the two. Hypertable’s support for unique cells is therefore a bit different. The interval is constrained by the value of the config property Hypertable. Keep in mind that the tutorrial cell timestamp is different than the one embedded in the row key. In the following queries we limit the number of rows returned to 2 for brevity. However, to modify the counter, the value must be formatted specially, as described in the following table.

In this example, we’ll be running the WikipediaWordCount program which is included in the hypertable-examples.

Select the title column of all rows whose section column contains exactly “books”. The primary key and column identifier are implicitly associated with each cell based on its physical position within the layout.

Hypertable will detect that there are new servers available with plenty of spare capacity and will automatically migrate ranges from the overloaded machines onto the new ones. The timestamp can be supplied by the application at insert time, or can be auto-generated default. Exit the hypertable shell and download the dataset, which is in the. Hypertable supports filtering of data using regular expression matching on the rowkey, column qualifiers and value.

The following command will add a ‘Notes’ column in a new access tutorixl called ‘extra’ and will drop column ‘ItemRank’. Select the title and info: Traditional SQL databases offer auto-incrementing columns, but an auto-incrementing column would be relatively slow to implement in a distributed database.


This section illustrates how Hypertable scales. The following is a list of some of the main differences.

Hypertable contains support for secondary indices. For example, assuming there are three slave servers, the following diagram shows what the system might look like over time.

A relational database assumes that each column defined in the table schema will have a value for each row that is present in the table.

Suppose you want a subset of the URLs from the domain inria. Counter columns are accessed using the same methods as other columns. In this example, they both represent the same time. Heres a small sample from the dataset:. The sys namespace is used by the Hypertable system and should not be used to contain user tables.

Like the example in the previous section, the programs operate on a table called wikipedia that has been loaded with a Wikipedia dump. This feature provides a way for users to introduce sparse column data that can be easily selected with Hypertable Query Language HQL or any of the other query interfaces. First, exit the Hypertalbe command line interpreter and download the Wikipedia dump, for example:.

Tables in Hypertable can be thought of as massive tables of data, sorted by a single primary key, the row key. Hypeftable run a MapReduce job over a subset of columns from the input table, specify a comma separated list of columns in the hypertable.

Can be a host specification pattern in which case one of the matching hosts will be chosen at random. This file includes an initial header line indicating the format of each line in the file by listing tab delimited column names. Hypertable extends the traditional two-dimensional table model by adding a third dimension:
