Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-16291) Explain the correct semantic of hbase.client.retries.number in doc
Date Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:27:20 GMT
Phil Yang created HBASE-16291:

             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
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.

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
