Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-212) Need target wrapper for HFileOuptutFormat
Date Sun, 09 Jun 2013 09:15:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-212?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13678977#comment-13678977

Chao Shi commented on CRUNCH-212:
---------------------------------

I think I hit something Gabriel mentioned that does not map cleanly to the crunch world:

HFileOutputFormat is not actually a target, as it needs a sort phase on rows as well as a
custom partitioner. So I have to make it a utility method: HBaseBulkLoadUtils#save(String
tableName, PCollection<Put or Delete>), which does sort in an additional stage. It can
also take advantage of handleOutputs() to call HBase to load the generated HFiles.

Any better ideas?

> I need to import data to hbase from MR. I found HFileOutputFormat is ~5x more efficient
than HTableOutputFormat. So maybe we need a target wrapper for it.
> Future more, is it possible to call HBase to load it automatically after HFiles are generated?
