can we make file connector to read file only in directory with name matched to the wildcard pattern

  1. The File connector is unable to read expected partitions data :  Expected to read data from all partitions excluding part_num=0, but it is reading data from part_num=1, part_num=10, part_num=11, part_num=12 and part_num=2 only.

      Expected Format as per UNIX HDFS - #AllHdfsProjectDirectories.$EDM_HUB_PROCESSED_BASE_HDFS_DIR##jp_HDFS_DIR#/#jpTableName#/part_num=[1-9]*/*
  2. The File connector is duplicating data while reading data using “read multiple files” option : Expected data from all partitions as one time, but the it is giving each partition data 4 times or 8 times or 12 times based on the CORES in APT file.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? we have left few heavy load jobs with noteworthy execution times. This patch will be a potential riposte for us, to extract ORC file data directly in parallel from each partition of a table.
How should it work?

1) Do you have a proposed solution for this problem?

2) and what would the measurable benefits of the solution be?

3) What are you doing today to work around the problem? (or what else did you try?)
