Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-2280) HFileOutputFormat writes output to "unsafe" directory

HFileOutputFormat writes output to "unsafe" directory
-----------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HBASE-2280
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2280
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.20.3
            Reporter: Vladimir Klimontovich
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 0.20.5, 0.21.0, 0.22.0


HFileOutputFormat writes data direct to output folder. It's incorrect as failed (or killed,
or interrupted) reducers leaves inconsistent files in output folder.

The convinient way to ouput data from OutputFormat is to use "working directory". The content
of this directory is being moved to output directory at the end of reducer process if only
reducer succeeded (this process is called "output commit" or "atomic commit").

If means that instead of

 final Path outputdir = FileOutputFormat.getOutputPath(context);

hbase should use

 final Path outputdir = FileOutputFormat.getWorkOutputPath(context);
