Subject Re: [DISCUSS] A Problem When Start HBase Cluster Using Table Based Replication
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2018 07:56:15 GMT
I think this is a bit awkward... A region server even does not need the
meta table to be online when starting, but it needs another system table
when starting...

I think unless we can make the regionserver start without replication, and
initialize it later, otherwise we can not break the tie. Having a special
'region server' seems a bad smell to me. What's the advantage comparing to

BTW, I believe that we only need the ReplicationPeerStorage to be available
when starting a region server, so we can keep this data in zk, and storage
the queue related data to hbase:replication table? The replication related
data is small so I think this is OK.
