Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-720) clean up inconsistencies around deletes
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2008 23:04:45 GMT
clean up inconsistencies around deletes

                 Key: HBASE-720
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-720
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: stack

Compaction clears all cells behind any found 'delete' cell.  This makes for an inconsistency
in that before the compaction runs, you can do a get or scan on a timestamp older than the
delete cell and get results.  Confusing.

Either preserve all cells for all time (or until > MAX_VERSIONS or TTL) or else make it
so presence of a delete cell in the future stops client fetching anything older (expensive).
