In an early release of Hive, the hive.stats.collect.rawdatasize property collected statistics when set to true. As Hive matured, hive.stats.autogather was added to gather statistics when data is inserted into tables.

In Hive 2.1.0 the hive.stats.collect.rawdatasize property was removed (HIVE-13564).
