---------------------------------------

             Summary: add an option for timeout, rather than retry limit, in HCM
                 Key: HBASE-7659
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7659
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Client
            Reporter: Sergey Shelukhin
            Assignee: Sergey Shelukhin


Retry count limit is not the most useful user-facing measure for failing the request, especially
multi-requests that currently fail if any one sub-action reaches the retry count. 
Given the current deterministic implementation of retry count limit and deterministic (+-jitter)
sleep time between retries, the user is already giving us an upper time bound for an operation
to expire (with default 10 retries, around a minute).
We can make this explicit.
That will also make making retries smarter (e.g. retrying faster on certain errors) more easy.

In future these things can be set per request, which can be usable for people using HBase
directly from their code.
