Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-456) Need utility for exporting and importing tables
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2012 17:46:34 GMT


Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-456:

The patch depends on a table being in the offline state.  It relies on the user to keep the
table in the offline state while the distcp runs.  I was thinking about a new table state,
call this state FROZEN.  A frozen table can be read, but never written to.  A FROZEN table
can not transition to ONLINE, it can only transition to DELETED.  So a user could clone a
table and then tranistion it to FROZEN instead of OFFLINE.  I like this because it makes the
users intent for a table very clear on a system with many users.  I don't like that it adds
complexity to the system.  If someone brings a table online while the distcp is running, the
distcp may fail which is probably not too big of a deal.
