Subject hbase hdfs snapshots
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 19:12:31 GMT
HBase snapshots are a very useful feature. but it was implemented back
before there was the ability to snapshot via HDFS.

Newer versions of Hadoop support HDFS snapshots.  I was wondering if the
community would be interested in something like a Snapshot V3 where we use
HDFS to take these snapshots.

Even with manifests (Snapshot V2) for our larger tables it can take hours
to Snapshot and Clone a table.

Would this feature be of use to anyone?
