FAQ
Hi Chas,

Here's the link to our doc on CREATE TABLE. You can also find how to
refresh a table metadata there.

http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/Impala/latest/Installing-and-Using-Impala/ciiu_langref_sql.html?scroll=create_table_unique_1

You can create an external table pointing to a particular location.

Thanks,
Alan

Hi,

We have a custom ETL tool which can write Parquet files directly to hdfs.
Given an directory of Parquet files (all parts of the same table), how do I
create an Impala table from these files? I cannot find the syntax in the
Cloudera docs.

Also when new files arrive in the hdfs folder, how can we refresh the
table so the new rows are picked up?

Thanks

Chas
