Release Notes for 1.1.0


This release comes with several features, including SQL, UI, and performance enhancements. Also included are bug fixes across multiple features such as the V2 multi-stage query engine, ingestion, storage format, and SQL support.

Multi-stage query engine


Support RelDistribution-based trait planning (#11976, #12079)

  • Adds support for RelDistribution optimization for more accurate leaf-stage direct exchange/shuffle. Also extends partition optimization beyond leaf stage to entire query plan.

  • Applies optimization based on distribution trait in the mailbox/worker assignment stage

    • Fixes previous direct exchange which was decided based on the table partition hint. Now direct exchange is decided via distribution trait: it will applied if-and-only-if the trait propagated matches the exchange requirement.

    • As a side effect, is_colocated_by_join_keys query option is reintroduced to ensure dynamic broadcast which can also benefit from direct exchange optimization

    • Allows propagation of partition distribution trait info across the tree to be used during Physical Planning phase. It can be used in the following scenarios (will follow up in separate PRs)

  • Note on backward incompatbility

    • is_colocated_by_join_keys hint is now required for making colocated joins

      • it should only affect semi-join b/c it is the only one utilizing broadcast exchange but were pulled to act as direct exchange.

      • inner/left/right/full join should automatically apply colocation thus the backward incompatibility should not affect these.

Leaf stage planning with multi-semi join support (#11937)

  • Solves the limitation of pinotQuery that supports limited amount of PlanNodes.

  • Splits the ServerRequest planning into 2 stages

    • First plan as much as possible into PinotQuery

    • for any remainder nodes that cannot be planned into PinotQuery, will be run together with the LeafStageTransferrableBlockOperator as the input locally.

Support for ArrayAgg aggregation function (#11822)

  • Usage: ArrayAgg(column, 'dataType' [, 'isDistinct'])

  • Float type column is treated as Double in the multistage engine, so FLOAT type is not supported.

  • Supports data BOOLEAN, INT, LONG, FLOAT(only in V1), DOUBLE, STRING, TIMESTAMP. E.g. ArrayAgg(intCol, 'INT') returns ARRAY<INT>

Notable features

Server-level throttling for realtime consumption (#12292)

  • Use server config pinot.server.consumption.rate.limit to enable this feature

  • Server rate limiter is disabled by default (default value 0)

Reduce segment generation disk footprint for Minion Tasks (#12220)

  • Supported in MergeRollupTask and RealtimeToOfflineSegmentsTask minion tasks

  • Use taskConfig segmentMapperFileSizeThresholdInBytes to specify the threshold size

"task": {
  "taskTypeConfigsMap": {
    "<task_name>": {
      "segmentMapperFileSizeThresholdInBytes": "1000000000"

Support for swapping of TLS keystore/truststore (#12277, #12325)

  • Security feature that makes the keystore/truststore swappable.

  • Auto-reloads keystore/truststore (without need for a restart) if they are local files

Sticky query routing (#12276)

  • Adds support for deterministic and sticky routing for a query / table / broker. This setting would lead to same server / set of servers (for MultiStageReplicaGroupSelector) being used for all queries of a given table.

  • Query option (takes precedence over fixed routing setting at table / broker config level) SET "useFixedReplica"=true;

  • Table config (takes precedence over fixed routing setting at broker config level)

    "routing": {
       "useFixedReplica": true
  • Broker conf - pinot.broker.use.fixed.replica=true

Table Config to disallow duplicate primary key for dimension tables (#12290)

  • Use tableConfig dimensionTableConfig.errorOnDuplicatePrimaryKey=true to enable this behavior

  • Disabled by default

Partition-level ForceCommit for realtime tables (#12088)

  • Support to force-commit specific partitions of a realtime table.

  • Partitions can be specified to the forceCommit API as a comma separated list of partition names or consuming segment names

Support initializing broker tags from config (#12175)

  • Support to give the broker initial tags on startup.

  • Automatically updates brokerResource when broker joins the cluster for the first time

  • Broker tags are provided as comma-separated values in pinot.broker.instance.tags

Support for StreamNative OAuth2 authentication for Pulsar (#12068)

  • StreamNative (the cloud SAAS offering of Pulsar) uses OAuth2 to authenticate clients to their Pulsar clusters.

  • For more information, see how to Configure OAuth2 authentication in Pulsar clients

  • Can be configured by adding the following properties to streamConfigs:

"stream.pulsar.issuerUrl": "https://auth.streamnative.cloud"
"stream.pulsar.credsFilePath": "file:///path/to/private_creds_file"
"stream.pulsar.audience": "urn:sn:pulsar:test:test-cluster"

Introduce low disk mode to table rebalance (#12072)

  • Introduces a new table rebalance boolean config lowDiskMode.Default value is false.

  • Applicable for rebalance with downtime=false.

  • When enabled, segments will first be offloaded from servers, then added to servers after offload is done. It may increase the total time of the rebalance, but can be useful when servers are low on disk space, and we want to scale up the cluster and rebalance the table to more servers.

  • #12112 adds the UI capability to toggle this option

Support vector index and hierarchical navigable small worlds (HNSW) (#11977)

  • Supports Vector Index on float array/multi-value columnz

  • Add predicate and function to retrieve topK closest vector. Example query

SELECT ProductId, UserId, l2_distance(embedding, ARRAY[-0.0013143676,-0.011042999,...]) AS l2_dist, n_tokens, combined
FROM fineFoodReviews
WHERE VECTOR_SIMILARITY(embedding, ARRAY[-0.0013143676,-0.011042999,...], 5)  
ORDER by l2_dist ASC 
  • The function l2_distance will return a double value where the first parameter is the embedding column and the second parameter is the search term embedding literal.

  • Since VectorSimilarity is a predicate, once config the topK, this predicate will return topk rows per segment. Then if you are using this index with other predicate, you may not get expected number of rows since the records matching other predicate might not in the topk rows.

Support for retention on deleted keys of upsert tables (#12037)

  • Adds an upsert config deletedKeysTTL which will remove deleted keys from in-memory hashmap and mark the validDocID as invalid after the deletedKeysTTL threshold period.

  • Disabled by default. Enabled only if a valid value for deletedKeysTTL is set.

Configurable Lucene analyzer (#12027)

  • Introduces the capability to specify a custom Lucene analyzer used by text index for indexing and search on an individual column basis.

  • Sample usage

fieldConfigList: [
        "name": "columnName",
        "indexType": "TEXT",
        "indexTypes": [
        "properties": {
          "luceneAnalyzerClass": "org.apache.lucene.analysis.core.KeywordAnalyzer"
  • Default Behavior falls back to using the standardAnalyzer unless the luceneAnalyzerClass property is specified.

Support for murmur3 as a partition function (#12049)

  • Murmur3 support with optional fields seed and variant for the hash in functionConfig field of columnPartitionMap.Default value for seed is 0.

  • Added support for 2 variants of Murmur3: x86_32 and x64_32 configurable using the variant field in functionConfig. If no variant is provided we choose to keep the x86_32 variant as it was part of the original implementation.

  • Examples of functionConfig;

    "tableIndexConfig": {
          "segmentPartitionConfig": {
            "columnPartitionMap": {
              "memberId": {
                "functionName": "Murmur3",
                "numPartitions": 3 

    Here there is no functionConfig configured, so the seed value will be 0 and variant will be x86_32.

    "tableIndexConfig": {
          "segmentPartitionConfig": {
            "columnPartitionMap": {
              "memberId": {
                "functionName": "Murmur3",
                "numPartitions": 3,
                "functionConfig": {
                   "seed": "9001"

    Here the seed is configured as 9001 but as no variant is provided, x86_32 will be picked up.

     "tableIndexConfig": {
          "segmentPartitionConfig": {
            "columnPartitionMap": {
              "memberId": {
                "functionName": "Murmur3",
                "numPartitions": 3,
                "functionConfig" :{
                   "seed": "9001"
                   "variant": "x64_32"

    Here the variant is mentioned so Murmur3 will use the x64_32 variant with 9001 as seed.

  • Note on users using Debezium and Murmur3 as partitioning function :

    • The partitioning key should be set up on either of byte[], String or long[] columns.

    • On pinot variant should be set as x64_32 and seed should be set as 9001.

New optimized MV forward index to only store unique MV values

  • Adds new MV dictionary encoded forward index format that only stores the unique MV entries.

  • This new index format can significantly reduce the index size when the MV entries repeat a lot

  • The new index format can be enabled during index creation, derived column creation, and segment reload

  • To enable the new index format, set the compression codec in the FieldConfig:

      "name": "myCol",
      "encodingType": "DICTIONARY",
      "compressionCodec": "MV_ENTRY_DICT"

    Or use the new index JSON:

      "name": "myCol",
      "encodingType": "DICTIONARY",
      "indexes": {
        "forward": {
          "dictIdCompressionType": "MV_ENTRY_DICT"

Support for explicit null handling modes (#11960)

  • Adds support for 2 possible ways to handle null:

    • Table mode - which already exists

    • Column mode, which means that each column specifies its own nullability in the FieldSpec

  • Column mode can be enabled by the below config.

  • The default value for enableColumnBasedNullHandling is false. When set to true, Pinot will ignore TableConfig.IndexingConfig.nullHandlingEnabled and columns will be nullable if and only if FieldSpec.notNull is false, which is also the default value.

  "schemaName": "blablabla",
  "dimensionFieldSpecs": [
      "dataType": "INT",
      "name": "nullableField",
      "notNull": false
      "dataType": "INT",
      "name": "notNullableField",
      "notNull": true
      "dataType": "INT",
      "name": "defaultNullableField"
  "enableColumnBasedNullHandling": true/false

Support tracking out of order events in Upsert (#11877)

  • Adds a new upsert config outOfOrderRecordColumn

  • When set to a non-null value, we check whether an event is OOO or not and then accordingly update the corresponding column value to true / false.

  • This will help in tracking which event is out-of-order while using skipUpsert

Compression configuration support for aggregationConfigs to StartreeIndexConfigs (#11744)

  • Can be used to save space. For eg: when a functionColumnPairs has a output type of bytes, such as when you use distinctcountrawhll.

  • Sample config

"starTreeIndexConfigs": [
          "dimensionsSplitOrder": [
          "skipStarNodeCreationForDimensions": [],
          "functionColumnPairs": [],
          "aggregationConfigs": [
              "columnName": "column1",
              "aggregationFunction": "SUM",
              "compressionCodec": "SNAPPY"
              "columnName": "column2",
              "aggregationFunction": "distinctcounthll",
              "compressionCodec": "LZ4"
          "maxLeafRecords": 10000

Preconfiguration based mirror instance assignment (#11578)

  • Supports instance assignment based pre-configured instance assignment map.

  • The assignment will always respect the mirrored servers in the pre-configured map

  • More details here

  • Sample table config

"instanceAssignmentConfigMap": {
    "replicaGroupPartitionConfig": { ... },
     "tagPoolConfig": {
       "tag": "mt1_REALTIME"
   "replicaGroupPartitionConfig": { ... },
    "tagPoolConfig": {
       "tag": "mt1_OFFLINE"
 "instancePartitionsMap": {
      "COMPLETED": "mt1_OFFLINE"

Support for listing dimension tables (#11859)

  • Adds dimension as a valid option to table "type" in the /tables controller API

Support in upsert for dropping out of order events (#11811)

  • This patch adds a new config for upsert: dropOutOfOrderRecord

  • If set to true, pinot doesn't persist out-of-order events in the segment.

  • This feature is useful to

    • Save disk-usage

    • Avoid any confusion when using skipUpsert for partial-upsert tables as nulls start showing up for columns where a previous non-null was encountered and we don't know if it's an out-of-order event or not.

Support to retry failed table rebalance tasks (#11740)

  • New configs for the RebalanceChecker periodic task:

    • controller.rebalance.checker.frequencyPeriod: 5min by default ; -1 to disable

    • controller.rebalanceChecker.initialDelayInSeconds: 2min+ by default

  • New configs added for RebalanceConfig:

    • heartbeatIntervalInMs: 300_000 i.e. 5min

    • heartbeatTimeoutInMs: 3600_000 i.e. 1hr

    • maxAttempts: 3 by default, i.e. the original run plus two retries

    • retryInitialDelayInMs: 300_000 i.e. 5min, for exponential backoff w/ jitters

  • New metrics to monitor rebalance and its retries:

    • TABLE_REBALANCE_FAILURE("TableRebalanceFailure", false), emit from TableRebalancer.rebalanceTable()

    • TABLE_REBALANCE_EXECUTION_TIME_MS("tableRebalanceExecutionTimeMs", false), emit from TableRebalancer.rebalanceTable()

    • TABLE_REBALANCE_FAILURE_DETECTED("TableRebalanceFailureDetected", false), emit from RebalanceChecker

    • TABLE_REBALANCE_RETRY("TableRebalanceRetry", false), emit from RebalanceChecker

  • New restful API

    • DELETE /tables/{tableName}/rebalance API to stop rebalance. In comparison, POST /tables/{tableName}/rebalance was used to start one.

  • Support for UltraLogLog in Star-Tree indexes

Support for Apache Datasketches CPC sketch (#11774)

  • Ingestion via transformation function

  • Extracting estimates via query aggregation functions

Support to reduce DirectMemory OOM chances on broker (#11710)

  • Broadly there are two configs that will enable this feature:

    • maxServerResponseSizeBytes: Maximum serialized response size across all servers for a query. This value is equally divided across all servers processing the query.

    • maxQueryResponseSizeBytes: Maximum length of the serialized response per server for a query

  • Configs are available as queryOption, tableConfig and Broker config. The priority of enforcement is as follows:

    The overriding order of priority is:
    1. QueryOption  -> maxServerResponseSizeBytes
    2. QueryOption  -> maxQueryResponseSizeBytes
    3. TableConfig  -> maxServerResponseSizeBytes
    4. TableConfig  -> maxQueryResponseSizeBytes
    5. BrokerConfig -> pinot.broker.max.server.response.size.bytes
    6. BrokerConfig -> pinot.broker.max.query.response.size.bytes

UI support to allow schema to be created with JSON config (#11809)

  • This is helpful when user has the entire JSON handy

  • UI still keeps Form Way to add Schema along with JSON view

Support in JSON index for ignoring values longer than a given length (#11604)

  • Use option maxValueLength in jsonIndexConfig to restrict length of values

  • A value of 0 (or when the key is omitted) means there is no restriction

Support for MultiValue VarByte V4 index writer (#11674)

  • Supports serializing and writing MV columns in VarByteChunkForwardIndexWriterV4

  • Supports V4 reader that can be used to read SV var length, MV fixed length and MV var length buffers encoded with V4 writer

Backward incompatible Changes

  • Fix a race condition for upsert compaction (#12346). Notes on backward incompatibility below:

    • This PR is introducing backward incompatibility for UpsertCompactionTask. Previously, we allowed to configure the compaction task without the snapshot enabled. We found that using in-memory based validDocIds is a bit dangerous as it will not give us the consistency (e.g. fetching validDocIds bitmap while the server is restarting & updating validDocIds).

      We now enforce the enableSnapshot=true for UpsertCompactionTask if the advanced customer wants to run the compaction with the in-memory validDocId bitmap.

        "upsertConfig": {
          "mode": "FULL",
          "enableSnapshot": true
      "task": {
        "taskTypeConfigsMap": {
          "UpsertCompactionTask": {
            "schedule": "0 */5 * ? * *",
            "bufferTimePeriod": "7d",
            "invalidRecordsThresholdPercent": "30",
            "invalidRecordsThresholdCount": "100000",
            "invalidDocIdsType": "SNAPSHOT/IN_MEMORY/IN_MEMORY_WITH_DELETE"

      Also, we allow to configure invalidDocIdsType to UpsertCompactionTask for advanced user.

      1. snapshot: Default validDocIds type. This indicates that the validDocIds bitmap is loaded from the snapshot from the Pinot segment. UpsertConfig's enableSnapshot must be enabled for this type.

        1. onHeap: the validDocIds bitmap will be fetched from the server.

        2. onHeapWithDelete: the validDocIds bitmap will be fetched from the server. This will also take account into the deleted documents. UpsertConfig's deleteRecordColumn must be provided for this type.
