Good day,

In my situation my table has billion rows, it doesn't come with an integer
column as its key, that means if I use sqoop to do the import (into hive),
I would not be able to use multiple mapper.
As table's size is big, it is not realistic to add an extra new integer
field to it.

I do come across a post from hortonworks which seems to suggest it is
possible however was commented that:

1. no guarantees though that sqoop splits your records evenly over your
mappers though.
2. For huge number of row the above options will cause duplicates in the
results set.

Any thought?

Thank you very much.

*Sincerely yours,*
