<title>DISABLE_HBASE_NUM_ROWS_ESTIMATE Query Option</title>

Use the <codeph>DISABLE_HBASE_NUM_ROWS_ESTIMATE</codeph> query option to disable key
sampling of HBase tables in row count and row size estimation.
While generating a plan for an HBase query, the planner samples the underlying HBase
tables to estimate their row count and row size, and the sampling can negatively impact
the planning time. When the HBase table stats does not change much in short time, disable
the sampling by setting the <codeph>DISABLE_HBASE_NUM_ROWS_ESTIMATE</codeph> query option
to <codeph>TRUE</codeph>. And Impala planner will fall back to using Hive Metastore (HMS)
table stats instead.
When <codeph>DISABLE_HBASE_NUM_ROWS_ESTIMATE</codeph> query option is set to
<codeph>TRUE</codeph>, you need to update the HMS table stats by running <codeph>COMPUTE
STATS</codeph>. Alternatively, you can manually set table statistics by running
<codeph>ALTER TABLE</codeph>. See <xref
for details.
The following values are supported:
<codeph>TRUE</codeph> or <codeph>1</codeph>: Disables the normal key sampling of HBase
tables and uses HMS table stats for estimation.
<codeph>FALSE</codeph> or <codeph>0</codeph>: Enables the normal sampling of HBase
<b>Type:</b> <codeph>BOOLEAN</codeph>
<b>Default:</b> <codeph>FALSE</codeph>
