PREFETCH_MODE Query Option (Impala 2.6 or higher only)

Determines whether the prefetching optimization is applied during join query processing.

Type: numeric (0, 1) or corresponding mnemonic strings (NONE, HT_BUCKET).

Default: 1 (equivalent to HT_BUCKET)

Added in: Impala 2.6.0

Usage notes:

The default mode is 1, which means that hash table buckets are prefetched during join query processing.
