Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-48) [hbase] Bulk load tools
Date Sun, 02 Aug 2009 02:50:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-48?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

stack updated HBASE-48:
-----------------------

    Summary: [hbase] Bulk load tools  (was: [hbase] Bulk load and dump tools)

I deleted my last comment.  It was duplication of stuff said earlier in this issue a good
while ago.

I changed title of this issue to only be about bulk upload.   The bulk dump is going on elsewhere:
e.g. HBASE-1684

On earlier comments about splitting table so at least a region per regionserver, that ain't
hard to do now.  You can do it via UI -- force a split -- or just write a little script to
add a table and initial region range (for example, see the script in the attached patch).

I think criteria for closing this issue is commit of some set of tools that allow writing
hfiles either into new tables or into extant tables.

> Hbase needs tools to facilitate bulk upload and possibly dumping.  Going via the current
APIs, particularly if the dataset is large and cell content is small, uploads can take a long
time even when using many concurrent clients.
> PNUTS folks talked of need for a different API to manage bulk upload/dump.
> Another notion would be to somehow have the bulk loader tools somehow write regions directly
in hdfs.
