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

Chao Shi updated CRUNCH-212:
----------------------------

    Attachment: crunch-212-draft.patch

Sorry for the late reply. I finally decided to not use hbase's HFileOutputFormat and implement
our own version as a thin wrapper of HFile.Writer, because I think the former one is too hacky
and is not a pure output format.

My plan is to leverage crunch's functionality of sort and multiple MR stages than using HFileOutputFormat's.

More over, I see HFileOutputFormat use a TreeSet to sort KVs in memory at reducer side. I
don't think it is neccessary for us, because we can sort them during shuffle (HFileOutputFormat
sorts on row only in shuffle. I don't know why).

> 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?
