Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-8663) a HBase Shell command to list the tables replicated (from or to) current cluster
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 22:40:22 GMT
Demai Ni created HBASE-8663:

             Summary: a HBase Shell command to list the tables replicated (from or to) current
                 Key: HBASE-8663
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8663
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Replication
         Environment: clusters setup as Master and Slave for replication of tables 
            Reporter: Demai Ni
            Priority: Minor

This jira is to provide a hbase shell command which can give user can overview of the tables/columnfamilies
currently being replicated. The information will help system administrator for design and
planning, and also help application programmer to know which tables/columns should be watchout(for
example, not to modify a replicated columnfamily on the slave cluster)

Currently there is no easy way to tell which table(s)/columnfamily(ies) 
replicated from or to a particular cluster. 
On Master Cluster, an indirect method can be used by combining two steps: 1) $describe 'usertable'
 and 2)  $list_peers to map the REPLICATION_SCOPE to target(aka slave) cluster   
On slave cluster, this is no existing API/methods to list all the tables replicated to this

Here is an example, and prototype for Master cluster

{code: title=hbase shell command:list_replicated_tables |borderStyle=solid}
hbase(main):001:0> list_replicated_tables

public List<String[]> listReplicated() throws IOException {
    List<String[]> replicatedColFams = new ArrayList<String[]>();  
    HTableDescriptor[] tables;
    tables= this.connection.listTables();
    Map<String, String> peers = listPeers();
    for (HTableDescriptor table:tables) {
      HColumnDescriptor[] columns = table.getColumnFamilies();
      String tableName = table.getNameAsString();
      for (HColumnDescriptor column: columns) {
        int scope = column.getScope();
        if (scope!=0) {
          String[] replicatedEntry = new String[3]; 
          replicatedEntry[0] = tableName;
          replicatedEntry[1] = column.getNameAsString();
          replicatedEntry[2] = peers.get(Integer.toString(scope));
    return replicatedColFams;
