arw

Avro ReWrite

Provide command line utility to rewrite an Avro Object Container File (OCF), while changing the block count, the compression algorithm, or upgrading the schema. Note that when upgrading the schema, the new schema must be able to properly encode the data read using the old schema.

Why would a person want to upgrade the schema for an existing OCF? Perhaps if one wants to append data to it using the new schema.

Example use:

arw -summary -bc 100 -compression deflate -schema new-schema.avsc source.avro destination.avro

If summary option, -summary, is provided, arw will provide summary information while rewriting the OCF.

If verbose option, -v, is provided, arw will provide verbose information while rewriting the OCF. Specifying verbose implies the summary option.

If block count option, -bc, is provided, then each block will have no more items than specified. If omitted, then arw will re-encode blocks of the same length as found in source.avro. For instance, if the first block had 10 items, and the second has 15, then the destination.avro file will also have 10 items in the first block and 15 items in the second block.

If compression option is omitted, then arw will use the same compression algorithm as found in source.avro.

If schema option is omitted, then arw will write the new Avro file using the same schema as found in source.avro. If provided, arw will read the source Avro file using its provided schema, but attempt to encode and write the destination Avro file using the newly provided schema. If an item fails to encode using the new schema, the process will be aborted and an error message will be provided.

If source.avro is a hyphen character, -, then arw will read from standard input. If destination.avro is a hyphen character, then arw will write to standard output.

Invoking arw without any of the options simply copies the OCF file, verifying the contents of the data along the way.
