Subject Re: WAL Log - Real-time updates
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2014 18:07:02 GMT
the way this gets done in HBase, i.e. for the HBase Lily Indexer[1], is to
add a replication consumer that isn't an actual cluster. IMHO, you'd be
better off taking that kind of approach rather than trying to consume the
WALs off of HDFS. I haven't attempted to use our replication interface for
this yet, but in principle it should work.

Note that either of these approaches are going to be very fragile across
Accumulo versions because they aren't interfaces intended for consumption.
