Rekha commented on PIG-821:
---------------------------

Hi,

I searched the jars and am trying with statistics.QUANTILES for NTILE().Not 
sure if it will work, am trying.
For rank(), please suggest.

Thanks & Regards,
/Rekha.

> Hi,
> I came across a job which has some processing which I cant seem to get easily 
> over-the-counter from pig.
> These are NTILE() /rank() operations available in oracle.
> While I am trying to write a UDF, that is not working out too well for me 
> yet.. :(
> I have a ntile(n) over (partititon by x, y, z order by a desc, b desc) 
> operation to be done in pig scripts.
> Is there a default function in pig scripting which can do this?
> For example, lets consider a simple example at 
> http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/server.101/b10759/functions091.htm
> So here, how would we ideally substitute NTILE() with? any pig counterpart 
> function/udf?
> SELECT last_name, salary, NTILE(4) OVER (ORDER BY salary DESC) 
>    AS quartile FROM employees
>    WHERE department_id = 100;
>  
> LAST_NAME                     SALARY   QUARTILE

> In real case, i have ntile over multiple columns, so ideal way to find 
> histograms/boundary/spitting out the bucket number is needed.
> Similarly a pig function is required for rank() over(partition by a,b,c order 
> by d desc) as e
> Please let me know soon.
