Subject Re: Bad performance of the first

I'm guessing that you're using a version of HDP? If you're using those 
versions from Apache, please update as they're dreadfully out of date.

What is the DDL of the table you're reading from? Do you have any 
secondary indexes on this table (if so, on what columns)? What kind of 
query are you running? What is the output of `EXPLAIN <sql>` for these 

For example, this could be easily explained if Phoenix is reading the 
data table and post-filtering records. It could take significant amounts 
of time to read data that does not satisfy your query until you get to 
some data which does...
