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

             Summary: Explain the correct semantic of hbase.client.retries.number in doc
                 Key: HBASE-16291
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16291
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Phil Yang
            Assignee: Phil Yang


In hbase-default.xml (and also in HBase Book), the description of hbase.client.retries.number
is:
{quote}
Maximum retries.  Used as maximum for all retryable operations such as the getting of a cell's
value, starting a row update, etc.  Retry interval is a rough function based on hbase.client.pause.
 At first we retry at this interval but then with backoff, we pretty quickly reach  retrying
every ten seconds.  See HConstants#RETRY_BACKOFF for how the backup ramps up.  Change this
setting and hbase.client.pause to suit your workload.
{quote}

However, the semantic of this conf is confusing and different in various branches. After HBASE-14521,
in master it means "the number of RETRIES", but in all the other branches it still means "the
number of TRIES".

So I think we need make the doc clearly and tell users what it is in 0.98/1.x and what it
will be from 2.0
