> For replication we need to be able to service clusters that are a few hours behind in
edits. For example, after distcp'ing a snapshot of the DB to another cluster, we need to make
sure we get the edits that came in after the snapshot was taken.
> I plan the following changes:
> - Instead of deleting HLogs during a log roll or after a log split, move them to another
folder where all logs should be aggregated.
> - Add a new configuration for how old a log can be. For a normal cluster I think of a
default of 2 hours. For replication you may want to set it much higher.
> - Create a new thread in the master that checks for logs older than configured time and
that deletes them.
> I also fancy having the deletion time to be configurable while the cluster is running.
I'm also thinking of adding a way to tell the cluster to replay edits on itself.
