This release introduces a new features: Segment Merge and Rollup to simplify users day to day operational work. A new metrics plugin is added to support dropwizard. As usual, new functionalities and many UI/ Performance improvements.
LinkedIn operates a large multi-tenant cluster that serves a business metrics dashboard, and noticed that their tables consisted of millions of small segments. This was leading to slow operations in Helix/Zookeeper, long running queries due to having too many tasks to process, as well as using more space because of a lack of compression.
To solve this problem they added the Segment Merge task, which compresses segments based on timestamps and rolls up/aggregates older data. The task can be run on a schedule or triggered manually via the Pinot REST API.
At the moment this feature is only available for offline tables, but will be added for real-time tables in a future release.
This release also sees improvements to Pinot’s query console UI.
There have also been improvements and additions to Pinot’s SQL implementation.
