It is also updated transactionally on-the-fly and deleted on-the-fly
transactionally from the remote database.

Remote caching for Hadoop sources
When SAP HANA dispatches a federated query to HIVE, it involves series of ‘map’ and ‘reduce’ job execution.
This could take few minutes to hours to complete a query depending on the data size in Hadoop and the
current cluster capacity.
In most cases, the data in Hadoop cluster is not frequently updated and successive execution of map/reduce
jobs might result in same tuples.
As of SPS 07, HANA allows this result view to be materialized in the remote system thus avoiding the repetitive
execution of the same query.
This behavior can be controlled by hinting the optimizer to use remote caching.
Select * from hive_activity_log where incident_type = ‘ERROR’ and plant =’001’ with hint (USE_REMOTE_CACHE)

Generic Adapter Framework
• Add support for new ODBC data sources by providing connectivity
configuration files
CREATE SOURCE DB2sample adapter "odbc" CONFIGURATION FILE ‘dbs1.ini' using "Server=myDBsrv;Port=4100..."
• Sample Properties file entries
CAP_JOINS : true

Configuration Validation Utility - hdbsdautil
• The utility check drivers and dependency files of given data source type.
• Can also connect to remote database with given credential information and run query with/without result set
• Syntax
hdbsdautil -t <data source type> -S <DSN or string> [-U <username> [-P <password>]] [-Q <SQL>] [-nr] [-info]
• Examples
hdbsdautil -t tdodbc -S "dsn=td_dsn" -U test -P test -info
Try to connect to a remote Teradata database with ODBC configuration in property file (e.g. ~/.odbc.ini)
With username and password specified
Dump ODBC information to console
