Apache Pig - Illustrate Operator


Advertisements


The illustrate operator gives you the step-by-step execution of a sequence of statements.

Syntax

Given below is the syntax of the illustrate operator.

grunt> illustrate Relation_name;

Example

Assume we have a file student_data.txt in HDFS with the following content.

001,Rajiv,Reddy,9848022337,Hyderabad
002,siddarth,Battacharya,9848022338,Kolkata 
003,Rajesh,Khanna,9848022339,Delhi
004,Preethi,Agarwal,9848022330,Pune 
005,Trupthi,Mohanthy,9848022336,Bhuwaneshwar
006,Archana,Mishra,9848022335,Chennai.

And we have read it into a relation student using the LOAD operator as shown below.

grunt> student = LOAD 'hdfs://localhost:9000/pig_data/student_data.txt' USING PigStorage(',')
   as ( id:int, firstname:chararray, lastname:chararray, phone:chararray, city:chararray );

Now, let us illustrate the relation named student as shown below.

grunt> illustrate student;

Output

On executing the above statement, you will get the following output.

grunt> illustrate student;
