Preface

This report covers the following products.

  • Pentaho Analysis 5.1.0.0-752 ( 3.7.0.0-752 )
  • Impala impalad version cdh5-1.3.0 RELEASE
  • Simba driver for Impala JDBC4 2.5.5.1007

Feature

Status

Notes

Degenerate Schemas

 

Star Schemas


 

Snowflake Schemas

Not all join structures are properly handled. The JDBC parser fails to parse certain types of schemas.

Filters

Complex compound filters produce wrong numbers.

Top Count


 

Aggregation Tables


 

Null Values & Keys


 

Inline Tables


 

Distinct Count


Not all forms of distinct counts are supported, although the minimum support it offers is sufficient for Mondrian.

Grouping Sets


Grouping sets are not supported.

Failures

Complex filtering clauses cause wrong numbers to be returned

Symptom

When a complex compound predicate is used within a SQL query, the driver makes errors while parsing and the returned numbers are wrong.

Failed tests

Test

Result

org.pentaho.mondrian.tck.NativeFilterTest.testCompoundPredicate

Using a compound predicate like the one below produces wrong numbers.

select sum(sales_fact_1997.unit_sales) as m0
  from store store
     , product product
     , sales_fact_1997 sales_fact_1997
 where sales_fact_1997.store_id  = store.store_id
   and sales_fact_1997.product_id = product.product_id
   and ((
           store.store_country     = 'USA'
       and store.first_opened_date = '1981-01-03'

Support for database joins

Symptom

Not all forms of joins are supported by the database. This will prevent some types of schemas from being supported on the DB evaluated. In this case, the driver fails on implicit crossjoins, as well as complex snowflake schemas. This will impair Mondrian's capability to use snowflake schemas with this driver.

org.pentaho.mondrian.tck.JoinTest.testThreeWayJoinPlusDoubleStarLeaf92

The driver throws an exception when the following arrangement of table is used. The error happens with both SQL-89 and SQL-92 style joins.

Implicit joins are not supported. If mondrian tries to evaluate a crossjoin of the members of two levels in a context allowing empty cells, the fact table is omitted from the SQL query and both tables are joined by what is called an 'implicit' join.

Warnings

Distinct Count

Symptom

Not all forms of distinct count queries are supported. One form of distinct count for multiple columns is supported however, so mondrian can batch the queries as needed. The integration tests have also shown that the dialect is issuing the distinct count queries correctly.

Result

org.pentaho.mondrian.tck.AggregationTest.testDistinctTwoCount

Cannot batch multiple distinct count columns with the following syntax

Grouping sets

Queries which use grouping sets are not supported. This is a optimization feature supported by some more advanced databases. It allows to batch cell requests and improve the overall performance.
