Subject Re: How threads interact with each other in HBase
Date Thu, 30 Mar 2017 20:26:38 GMT
Also, please correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think a put is durable
when an RPC returns to the client. Just its corresponding WAL entry is
pushed to the memory of all three data nodes, so it has a low probability
of being lost. But nothing is persisted at this point.

And this is true no mater you use SYNC_WAL or FSYNC_WAL flag.
