Yes, there's a Thrift RPC -- the easiest way to call it is to use the shell
as follows: impala-shell -q "refresh"

I've filed IMPALA-426 <https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/IMPALA-426
track Avro table creation support. While I doubt this will make it into the

Is there a thrift call for "refresh"?
When will impala support creating avro table?
