Count(*)in Hive

A simpe count Query

select count(*) from stack_overflow_tags;

Group by in Hive

The output is too big. We need to give the output file path. This command can be executed in a non-hive terminal

hive -e "select tag1, count(*) as tag1_count from stack_overflow_tags group by tag1 order by tag1_count DESC" > /home/hduser/Output/hive_out_tag1.txt

Have a look at the exported file. Do this in a new (non-hive) terminal

cat /home/hduser/Output/hive_out_tag1.txt

hive -e "SELECT word, count(1) AS count FROM (SELECT explode(split(tag1, '\s')) AS word FROM stack_overflow_tags) w GROUP BY word ORDER BY count DESC" > /home/hduser/Output/hive_out_wordcount.txt

Have a look at the exported file. Do this in a new (non-hive) terminal

cat /home/hduser/Output/hive_out_wordcount.txt
