<indexterm audience="hidden">DISABLE_STREAMING_PREAGGREGATIONS query option</indexterm>
Turns off the <q>streaming preaggregation</q> optimization that is available in <keyword keyref="impala25_full"/>
and higher. This optimization reduces unnecessary work performed by queries that perform aggregation
operations on columns with few or no duplicate values, for example <codeph>DISTINCT <varname>id_column</varname></codeph>
or <codeph>GROUP BY <varname>unique_column</varname></codeph>. If the optimization causes regressions in
existing queries that use aggregation functions, you can turn it off as needed by setting this query option.

<note conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/one_but_not_true"/>

Typically, queries that would require enabling this option involve very large numbers of
aggregated values, such as a billion or more distinct keys being processed on each
worker node.
