> When a hadoop/hbase cluster is under heavy load it will inevitably reach a tipping point
where data is lost or corrupted.  A
> graceful method is needed to put the cluster into safe mode until more resources can
be added or the load on the cluster has been
> reduced.  
> St.Ack has suggested the following short-term task: "Meantime, it should be possible
to have a cron run a script that checks
> cluster resources from time-to-time -- e.g. how full hdfs is, how much each regionserver
is carrying -- and when it determines the needle is in the red,
> flip the cluster to be read-only."
