Subject Re: importdirectory command gets stuck
Date Thu, 07 Nov 2013 03:16:46 GMT
It sounds like the TabletServer on the other end trying to service your 
bulkimport request failed. A first start would be to go to that server 
which "IO was stuck" on and see if it's complaining about anything in 
the logs.

I believe the failures.txt file is a way for your client to know which 
files bulk import failed on (so you can retry them yourself).

Versions of Hadoop and Accumulo would also be very helpful in trying to 
help you debug what's happening.
