Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-212) Need target wrapper for HFileOuptutFormat

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

Exactly, Micah. I'm working on 1) for a while (I'm busy on other stuffs these days, so I haven't
get my tests pass. I will post it here after get test done). The API should be able to translate
PCollection<KeyValue> to a set of HFiles. There are two problems:
1. HFileOutputFormat only accepts PTable<ImmutableByteWritable, KeyValue> rather than
PCollection<KeyValue>. For us, as ImmutableByteWritable (the row key) can be extracted
from KeyValue, so we maybe prefer the cleaner PCollection<KeyValue> approach. Currently
I copied HFileOutputFormat and modified it a little.
2. We may need to specify a total order partitioned for bulk load. Although this should be
part of the BulkLoader, but we have to do this before generating the HFiles.

> 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?
