Subject RFile configuration preferences
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 22:55:52 GMT
It seems RFile has a preference for the Hadoop configuration object holding
Accumulo configuration over Accumulo per-table configuration in ZooKeeper.

See RFileOperations.openWriter(...).
The affected configuration properties are:

table.file.replication
table.file.blocksize
table.file.compress.blocksize
table.file.compress.blocksize.index
table.file.compress.type

Furthermore, when they appear in Hadoop configuration, they cannot contain
the Accumulo shortcuts for specifying byte sizes (like "1G").

Is this a bug, or a feature? It seems like there's a potential for it to be
a feature, particularly in AccumuloFileOutputFormat, so one can specify the
property in Hadoop, but it could also be a bug if it shows up in the Hadoop
configuration files... especially since we don't prefix these configuration
properties with something unique, like "accumulo."

Thoughts?
