+	When repairing a corrupted HBase, it is best to repair the lowest risk inconsistencies first.
+These are generally region consistency repairs -- localized single region repairs, that only modify
+in-memory data, ephemeral zookeeper data, or patch holes in the META table.
+Region consistency requires that the HBase instance has the state of the region&#8217;s data in HDFS
+(.regioninfo files), the region&#8217;s row in the hbase:meta table., and region&#8217;s deployment/assignments on
+region servers and the master in accordance. Options for repairing region consistency include:
+	</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-fixAssignments</code> (equivalent to the 0.90 <code class="code">-fix</code> option) repairs unassigned, incorrectly
+assigned or multiply assigned regions.</p></li><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-fixMeta</code> which removes meta rows when corresponding regions are not present in
+		  HDFS and adds new meta rows if they regions are present in HDFS while not in META.</p></li></ul></div><p>
+	To fix deployment and assignment problems you can run this command:
+</p><pre class="programlisting">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -fixAssignments
+</pre><p>To fix deployment and assignment problems as well as repairing incorrect meta rows you can
+run this command:</p><pre class="programlisting">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -fixAssignments -fixMeta
+</pre><p>There are a few classes of table integrity problems that are low risk repairs. The first two are
+degenerate (startkey == endkey) regions and backwards regions (startkey &gt; endkey). These are
+automatically handled by sidelining the data to a temporary directory (/hbck/xxxx).
+The third low-risk class is hdfs region holes. This can be repaired by using the:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-fixHdfsHoles</code> option for fabricating new empty regions on the file system.
+If holes are detected you can use -fixHdfsHoles and should include -fixMeta and -fixAssignments to make the new region consistent.</p></li></ul></div><pre class="programlisting">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -fixAssignments -fixMeta -fixHdfsHoles
+</pre><p>Since this is a common operation, we&#8217;ve added a the <code class="code">-repairHoles</code> flag that is equivalent to the
+previous command:</p><pre class="programlisting">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -repairHoles
+</pre><p>If inconsistencies still remain after these steps, you most likely have table integrity problems
+related to orphaned or overlapping regions.</p></div><div id="disqus_thread"></div><script type="text/javascript">

+because it requires modifications to the file system, requires some decision making, and may
+require some manual steps. For these repairs it is best to analyze the output of a <code class="code">hbck -details</code>
+run so that you isolate repairs attempts only upon problems the checks identify. Because this is
+riskier, there are safeguard that should be used to limit the scope of the repairs.
+WARNING: This is a relatively new and have only been tested on online but idle HBase instances
+(no reads/writes). Use at your own risk in an active production environment!
+The options for repairing table integrity violations include:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-fixHdfsOrphans</code> option for &#8220;adopting&#8221; a region directory that is missing a region
+metadata file (the .regioninfo file).</p></li><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-fixHdfsOverlaps</code> ability for fixing overlapping regions</p></li></ul></div><p>When repairing overlapping regions, a region&#8217;s data can be modified on the file system in two
+ways: 1) by merging regions into a larger region or 2) by sidelining regions by moving data to
+&#8220;sideline&#8221; directory where data could be restored later. Merging a large number of regions is
+technically correct but could result in an extremely large region that requires series of costly
+compactions and splitting operations. In these cases, it is probably better to sideline the regions
+that overlap with the most other regions (likely the largest ranges) so that merges can happen on
+a more reasonable scale. Since these sidelined regions are already laid out in HBase&#8217;s native
+directory and HFile format, they can be restored by using HBase&#8217;s bulk load mechanism.
+The default safeguard thresholds are conservative. These options let you override the default
+thresholds and to enable the large region sidelining feature.</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-maxMerge &lt;n&gt;</code> maximum number of overlapping regions to merge</p></li><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-sidelineBigOverlaps</code> if more than maxMerge regions are overlapping, sideline attempt
+to sideline the regions overlapping with the most other regions.</p></li><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-maxOverlapsToSideline &lt;n&gt;</code> if sidelining large overlapping regions, sideline at most n
+regions.</p></li></ul></div><p>Since often times you would just want to get the tables repaired, you can use this option to turn
+on all repair options:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p><code class="code">-repair</code> includes all the region consistency options and only the hole repairing table
+integrity options.</p></li></ul></div><p>Finally, there are safeguards to limit repairs to only specific tables. For example the following
+command would only attempt to check and repair table TableFoo and TableBar.</p><pre class="screen">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -repair TableFoo TableBar
+</pre><div class="section"><div class="titlepage"><div><div><h3 class="title"><a name="d4029e21163"></a>C.4.1.&nbsp;Special cases: Meta is not properly assigned</h3></div></div></div><p>There are a few special cases that hbck can handle as well.
+Sometimes the meta table&#8217;s only region is inconsistently assigned or deployed. In this case
+there is a special <code class="code">-fixMetaOnly</code> option that can try to fix meta assignments.</p><pre class="screen">
+$ ./bin/hbase hbck -fixMetaOnly -fixAssignments
+</pre></div><div class="section"><div class="titlepage"><div><div><h3 class="title"><a name="d4029e21173"></a>C.4.2.&nbsp;Special cases: HBase version file is missing</h3></div></div></div><p>HBase&#8217;s data on the file system requires a version file in order to start. If this flie is missing, you
+can use the <code class="code">-fixVersionFile</code> option to fabricating a new HBase version file. This assumes that
+the version of hbck you are running is the appropriate version for the HBase cluster.</p></div><div class="section"><div class="titlepage"><div><div><h3 class="title"><a name="d4029e21181"></a>C.4.3.&nbsp;Special case: Root and META are corrupt.</h3></div></div></div><p>The most drastic corruption scenario is the case where the ROOT or META is corrupted and
+HBase will not start. In this case you can use the OfflineMetaRepair tool create new ROOT
+and META regions and tables.
+This tool assumes that HBase is offline. It then marches through the existing HBase home
+directory, loads as much information from region metadata files (.regioninfo files) as possible
+from the file system. If the region metadata has proper table integrity, it sidelines the original root
+and meta table directories, and builds new ones with pointers to the region directories and their
+data.</p><pre class="screen">
+$ ./bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.hbck.OfflineMetaRepair
+</pre><p>NOTE: This tool is not as clever as uberhbck but can be used to bootstrap repairs that uberhbck
+can complete.
+If the tool succeeds you should be able to start hbase and run online repairs if necessary.</p></div><div class="section"><div class="titlepage"><div><div><h3 class="title"><a name="d4029e21190"></a>C.4.4.&nbsp;Special cases: Offline split parent</h3></div></div></div><p>
+Once a region is split, the offline parent will be cleaned up automatically. Sometimes, daughter regions
+are split again before their parents are cleaned up. HBase can clean up parents in the right order. However,
+there could be some lingering offline split parents sometimes. They are in META, in HDFS, and not deployed.
+But HBase can't clean them up. In this case, you can use the <code class="code">-fixSplitParents</code> option to reset
+them in META to be online and not split. Therefore, hbck can merge them with other regions if fixing
+overlapping regions option is used.
+    </p><p>
+This option should not normally be used, and it is not in <code class="code">-fixAll</code>.

An HFile in the existing format is structured as follows:

For each entry, it contains: </p><div class="orderedlist"><ol class="orderedlist" type="1"><li class="listitem"><p>Offset (long)</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>Uncompressed size (int)</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>Key (a serialized byte array written using Bytes.writeByteArray) </p><div class="orderedlist"><ol class="orderedlist" type="a"><li class="listitem"><p>Key length as a variable-length integer (VInt)

+                 </p></li></ol></div></li></ol></div><p>The number of entries in the block index is stored in the fixed file trailer, and has to be passed in to the method that reads the block index. One of the limitations of the block index in version 1 is that it does not provide the compressed size of a block, which turns out to be necessary for decompression. Therefore, the HFile reader has to infer this compressed size from the offset difference between blocks. We fix this limitation in version 2, where we store on-disk block size instead of uncompressed size, and get uncompressed size from the block header.</p></div><div class="footnotes"><br><hr style="width:100; text-align:left;margin-left: 0"><div id="ftn.d4029e21592" class="footnote"><p><a href="#d4029e21592" class="para"><sup class="para">[34] </sup></a>Image courtesy of Lars George, <a class="link" href="http://www.larsgeorge.com/2009/10/hbase-architecture-101-storage.html" target="_top">hbase-architecture-101-storage.ht

To read a root index block of version 2, one needs to know the number of entries. For the data index and the meta index the number of entries is stored in the trailer, and for the Bloom index it is stored in the compound Bloom filter metadata.</p><p>For a multi-level block index we also store the following fields in the root index block in the load-on-open section of the HFile, in addition to the data structure described above:</p><div class="orderedlist"><ol class="orderedlist" type="1"><li class="listitem"><p>Middle leaf index block offset</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>Middle leaf block on-disk size (meaning the leaf index block containing the reference to the &#8220;middle&#8221; data block of the file) </p></li><li class="listitem"><p>The index of the mid-key (defined below) in the middle leaf-level block.</p></li></ol></div><p></p><p>These addit
 ional fields are used to efficiently retrieve the mid-key of the HFile used in HFile splits, which we define as the first key of the block with a zero-based index of (n &#8211; 1) / 2, if the total number of blocks in the HFile is n. This definition is consistent with how the mid-key was determined in HFile version 1, and is reasonable in general, because blocks are likely to be the same size on average, but we don&#8217;t have any estimates on individual key/value pair sizes. </p><p></p><p>When writing a version 2 HFile, the total number of data blocks pointed to by every leaf-level index block is kept track of. When we finish writing and the total number of leaf-level blocks is determined, it is clear which leaf-level block contains the mid-key, and the fields listed above are computed. &nbsp;When reading the HFile and the mid-key is requested, we retrieve the middle leaf index block (potentially from the block cache) and get the mid-key value from the appropriate position inside 
 that leaf block.</p></div><div class="section"><div class="titlepage"><div><div><h3 class="title"><a name="d4029e21785"></a>F.3.5.&nbsp;

Each cell has a key. To save IO when reading Cells, the HFile also has an index that maps a Cell's start key to the offset of the beginning of a particular block. Prior to this optimization, HBase would use the key of the first cell in each data block as the index key.</p><p>In HBASE-7845, we generate a new key that is lexicographically larger than the last key of the previous block and lexicographically equal or smaller than the start key of the current block. While actual keys can potentially be very long, this "fake key" or "virtual key" can be much shorter. For example, if the stop key of previous block is "the
  quick brown fox", the start key of current block is "the who", we could use "the r" as our virtual key in our hfile index.</p><p>There are two benefits to this:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" style="list-style-type: disc; "><li class="listitem"><p>having shorter keys reduces the hfile index size, (allowing us to keep more indexes in memory), and</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>using something closer to the end key of the previous block allows us to avoid a potential extra IO when the target key lives in between the "virtual key" and the key of the first element in the target block.</p></li></ul></div><p>This optimization (implemented by the getShortMidpointKey method) is inspired by LevelDB's ByteWiseComparatorImpl::FindShortestSeparator() and FindShortSuccessor().</p></div></div><div id="disqus_thread"></div><script type="text/javascript">
