             Summary: No-chop merges
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3235
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3235
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: tserver
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs


Merges currently require a special "chop" major compaction, which can be slow. The idea is
simple: in the metadata entries for files, we track the range in use for that file with a
notation.

This additional metadata would be used to merge tablets without re-writing data. Only this
extra metadata would be updated (to a narrower range when split, and possibly collapsed if
merging adjacent ranges). If a range is missing for a file, the tablet's range will be used
instead. This simplifies things for backwards compatibility, and means we don't need to include
a redundant range if the tablet isn't splitting/merging.
