Date Fri, 27 Oct 2017 07:06:00 GMT
Amit Kabra created HBASE-19106:

             Summary: Backup self validation for its correctness.
                 Key: HBASE-19106
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-19106
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Amit Kabra

Backups are critical and if they don't work when we need them at the time of restore than
they are not useful. We should do sanity test for each backup job we run that it is restorable
and hence can be trusted.

A self validation feature can be added for the same to the backups where whenever a backup
is run , once it finishes it will trigger a validation job that will do a sample restoration
of the backed up data and will make sure that it compares well with actual data.
