Wes McKinney commented on ARROW-2026:
-------------------------------------

Moving to 0.10.0

> [Python] µs timestamps saved as int64 even if 
> use_deprecated_int96_timestamps=True
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>                 Key: ARROW-2026
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-2026
>             Project: Apache Arrow
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Python
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.0
>         Environment: OS: Mac OS X 10.13.2
> Python: 3.6.4
> PyArrow: 0.8.0
>            Reporter: Diego Argueta
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: redshift, timestamps
>             Fix For: 0.10.0
>

> When writing to a Parquet file, if `use_deprecated_int96_timestamps` is True, 
> timestamps are only written as 96-bit integers if the timestamp has 
> nanosecond resolution. This is a problem because Amazon Redshift timestamps 
> only have microsecond resolution but require them to be stored in 96-bit 
> format in Parquet files.
> I'd expect the use_deprecated_int96_timestamps flag to cause _all_ timestamps 
> to be written as 96 bits, regardless of resolution. If this is a deliberate 
> design decision, it'd be immensely helpful if it were explicitly documented 
> as part of the argument.
>  
> To reproduce:
>  
> 1. Create a table with a timestamp having microsecond or millisecond 
> resolution, and save it to a Parquet file. Be sure to set 
> `use_deprecated_int96_timestamps` to True.
>  
> {code:java}
> import datetime
> import pyarrow
> from pyarrow import parquet
> schema = pyarrow.schema([
>     pyarrow.field('last_updated', pyarrow.timestamp('us')),
> ])
> data = [
>     pyarrow.array([datetime.datetime.now()], pyarrow.timestamp('us')),
> ]
> table = pyarrow.Table.from_arrays(data, ['last_updated'])
> with open('test_file.parquet', 'wb') as fdesc:
>     parquet.write_table(table, fdesc,
>                         use_deprecated_int96_timestamps=True)
> {code}
>  
> 2. Inspect the file. I used parquet-tools:
>  
> {noformat}
> dak@tux ~ $ parquet-tools meta test_file.parquet
> file:         file:/Users/dak/test_file.parquet
> creator:      parquet-cpp version 1.3.2-SNAPSHOT
> file schema:  schema
> --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
> last_updated: OPTIONAL INT64 O:TIMESTAMP_MICROS R:0 D:1
> row group 1:  RC:1 TS:76 OFFSET:4
> --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
> last_updated:  INT64 SNAPPY DO:4 FPO:28 SZ:76/72/0.95 VC:1 
> ENC:PLAIN,PLAIN_DICTIONARY,RLE{noformat}
