             Summary: A robust way deal with early termination of HBCK
                 Key: HBASE-16008
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16008
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hbck
            Reporter: Stephen Yuan Jiang
            Assignee: Stephen Yuan Jiang

When HBCK is running, we want to disable Catalog Janitor, Balancer and Split/Merge.  Today,
the implementation is not robust.  If HBCK is terminated earlier by Control-C, the changed
state would not be reset to original.  

HBASE-15406 was trying to solve this problem for Split/Merge switch.  The implementation is
complicated, and it did not solve CJ and Balancer.  

We also have another problem is that to prevent multiple HBCK run, we used a file lock to
indicate a running HBCK; earlier terminating might not clean up the file.  Sometimes we have
to manually remove the file so that future HBCK could run.  

The proposal to solve all the problem is to use a znode to indicate that one HBCK is running.
 CJ, balancer, and Split/Merge switch all look for this znode before doing it operation.
