Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-7647) 0.94 hfiles v2.1 are not backwards compatible with HFilev2.0
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2013 22:56:12 GMT
Elliott Clark created HBASE-7647:

             Summary: 0.94 hfiles v2.1 are not backwards compatible with HFilev2.0
                 Key: HBASE-7647
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7647
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HFile
    Affects Versions: 0.94.4
            Reporter: Elliott Clark
            Assignee: Elliott Clark

When doing a rolling re-start from 0.92.x to 0.94.x any hfiles written by 0.94 are incompatibile
with any of the 0.92 region servers.  This is caused by the checksums being put into 0.94.

* a minor version was added
* checksums were put into the block
* checksum meta data was added to block headers.

I propose that since these changes are only needed if using hbase.regionserver.checksum.verify,
they should be turned off if that option is turned off.  Doing so will allow rolling upgrades
to go smoother.

If a user wants to go from a 0.92 cluster to a 0.94 cluster with hbase.regionserver.checksum.verify
they can:
* Roll out 0.94
* Change hbase-site.xml
* roll restart the region servers.
