             Summary: Local Transactions in META
                 Key: HBASE-7721
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7721
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Coprocessors, regionserver
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
             Fix For: 0.96.0


Thanks to Lars' local transactions patch (HBASE-5229), we can entertain the possibility of
doing local transactions within META regions.

We need this mainly for region splits and merges. Clients scan the META concurrent to the
split/merge operations, and to prevent the clients from seeing overlapping region boundaries
or holes in META, we just through hoops. For more backgroun, see BlockingMetaScannerVisitor,
HBASE-5986, and my comments at https://reviews.apache.org/r/8716/. 

Now, for the actual implementation options: 
 1. As outlined in http://hadoop-hbase.blogspot.com/2012_02_01_archive.html, 
   - We have to implement a Custom RegionSplitPolicy for the META regions to ensure that a
table's regions are always co-located in the same META region. Then we can add MultiRowMutationEndpoint
as a system level coprocessor, and use it for META operations. 
 2. Do smt like HBASE-7716, and expose local atomic multi-row operations as a native API.
 3. Move META to zookeeper. Use zookeeper.multi.  

Then we can change region split / merge logic to make use of atomic META operations. 

Thoughts, suggestions?
