    why do we even have this option to do bulkLoad or not ? why not just do 
bulkLoad always ?

>
> Queries against INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES and INFORMATION_SCHEMA.VIEWS slow 
> down as the number of views increases. 
> BI tools like Tableau issue a query like the following at connection time:
> {code}
> select TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME, TABLE_TYPE from 
> INFORMATION_SCHEMA.`TABLES` WHERE TABLE_CATALOG LIKE 'DRILL' ESCAPE '\' AND 
> TABLE_SCHEMA <> 'sys' AND TABLE_SCHEMA <> 'INFORMATION_SCHEMA'ORDER BY 
> TABLE_TYPE, TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME
> {code}
> The time to query the information schema tables degrades as the number of 
> views increases. On a test system:
> || Views || Time(secs) ||
> |500 | 6 |
> |1000 | 19 |
> |1500 | 33 |
> This can result in a single connection taking more than a minute to establish.
> The problem occurs because we read the view file for every view and this 
> appears to take most of the time.
> Querying information_schema.tables does not, in fact, need to open the view 
> file at all, it merely needs to get a listing of the view files. Eliminating 
> the view file read will speed up the query tremendously.
