Latest commit 637cc3e Feb 14, 2017 @michaelhkw michaelhkw committed with Impala Public Jenkins IMPALA-4821: Update AVG() for DECIMAL_V2
This change implements the DECIMAL_V2's behavior for AVG().
The differences with DECIMAL_V1 are:

1. The output type has a minimum scale of 6. This is similar
to MS SQL's behavior which takes the max of 6 and the input
type's scale. We deviate from MS SQL in the output's precision
which is always set to 38. We use the smallest precision which
can store the output. A key insight is that the output of AVG()
is no wider than the inputs. Precision only needs to be adjusted
when the scale is augmented. Using a smaller precision avoids
potential loss of precision in subsequent decimal operations
(e.g. division) if AVG() is a subexpression. Please note that
the output type is different from SUM()/COUNT() as the latter
can have a much larger scale.

2. Due to a minimum of 6 decimal places for the output,
AVG() for decimal values whose whole number part exceeds 32
decimal places (e.g. DECIMAL(38,4), DECIMAL(33,0)) will
always overflow as the scale is augmented to 6. Certain
decimal types which work with AVG() in DECIMAL_V1 no longer
work in DECIMAL_V2.

Welcome to Impala

Lightning-fast, distributed SQL queries for petabytes of data stored in Apache Hadoop clusters.

Impala is a modern, massively-distributed, massively-parallel, C++ query engine that lets you analyze, transform and combine data from a variety of data sources:

  • Best of breed performance and scalability.
  • Support for data stored in HDFS, Apache HBase and Amazon S3.
  • Wide analytic SQL support, including window functions and subqueries.
  • On-the-fly code generation using LLVM to generate CPU-efficient code tailored specifically to each individual query.
  • Support for the most commonly-used Hadoop file formats, including the Apache Parquet (incubating) project.
  • Apache-licensed, 100% open source.
