Zoltan Haindrich commented on HIVE-18448:
-----------------------------------------

[~alangates] okay, in that case I will file a jira about removing it from the 
metastore as well; I guess that should be done on the separated branch

> If a user needs to look up a small subset of records quickly, they can use 
> Apache HBase, if they need fast retrieval of larger sets of data, or fast 
> joins, aggregations, they can use Apache Impala.  It seems to me that Hive 
> indexes do not serve much of a role in the future of Hive.
> Even without moving workloads to other products, columnar file formats with 
> their statistics achieve similar goals as Hive indexes.
> Please consider dropping Indexes from the Apache Hive project.
