    Pig or Hive won’t be the right tool for deleting data from mysql. You are better off triggering a separate mysql sql query for that.
    You can take a look at project falcon – http://hortonworks.com/blog/project-falcon-tackling-hadoop-data-lifecycle-management-via-community-driven-open-source/ . It might help with this use case.
