Date Thu, 22 Oct 2015 04:26:17 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The "Hbase/Glossary" page has been changed by Misty:

- = Glossary =
+ This page is obsolete. See http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#datamodel.
- == Table ==
- HBase Table is three dimensional sorted map. It maps from Cartesian product of row key,
column key and timestamp to cell value:
- '''(row:byte[] x column:byte[] x timestamp:Long) -> byte[]'''
- All HBase data is stored in cell of tables.
- == Row ==
- One of HBase Table dimensions. I has Row Key that is arbitrary array of bytes. Table is
sorted in lexicographical order by it's Row Key.
- == Column ==
- One of HBase Table dimensions. A column name has the form "<family>:<label>"
where <family> and <label> can be arbitrary byte arrays. A table enforces its
set of <family>s (called "column families"). 
- == Column Family ==
- Column family is a predefined arbitrary set of columns and stored in HBase Schema. To create
some column in family you should create family first. A column family regroups data of a same
nature in HBase and has no constraint on the type. For each Row data in one Column family
is physically stored at one server. Each Column family has is attributes like: Compression,
Timestamps, Block Cache and etc.
- == Timestamps ==
