Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-7) [hbase] Provide a HBase checker and repair tool similar to fsck

Onur GUN commented on HBASE-7:

Sorry for late reply.

Hi Jim and stack,

Thanks for the replies. Maybe i am thinking of an exceptional or irrelevant situation, i don't
know for sure. But let me try to explain.

Lets say that we have run hbasck. It forces flush as it is suggested. Since the base functionality
of hbasck is to work in a corruption state; lets say we have corrupt mapfiles, storefiles
or regions. I just wonder if there could be a case, that flush triggers some other events
or event series "just" because of the corruptions. I mean we reach the split size etc just
because of the flush and corruptions.This will not probably effect the results, but i wonder
if forcing the flush is the best case. Maybe we should do correction and we should flush later
or anything else.  I don't know if this is possible or i am on the correct track, i just need
a direction to think of.

I am planning to do this as my SOC by the way. If anybody suggests any other ideas, i will
prepare them for my proposal and research to learn more. I will also email Dhruba and try
to help if he needs. I think that, i can help testing HADOOP-5189 for now.
