After you’ve obtained the driver, you need to copy the driver’s JAR file(s) into Sqoop’s lib/ directory. If you’re
using the Sqoop tarball, copy the JAR files directly into the lib/ directory after unzipping the tarball. If you’re using packages, you will need to copy the driver files into the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib directory

Subset of Data
When using the –where parameter, keep in mind the parallel nature of Sqoop transfers.
Data will be transferred in several concurrent tasks. Any expensive function call will put a significant performance burden on your database server. Advanced functionscould lock certain tables, preventing Sqoop from transferring data in parallel. This willadversely affect transfer performance. For efficient advanced filtering, run the filteringquery on your database prior to import, save its output to a temporary table and run
Sqoop to import the temporary table into Hadoop without the –where parameter.
