Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2376) Add special SnapshotScanner which presents view of all data at some time in the past
Date Thu, 25 Mar 2010 17:11:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12849785#action_12849785

dhruba borthakur commented on HBASE-2376:
-----------------------------------------

Awesome. This will be really helpful to mitigate any kind of application logical bugs where
the app mistakenly removes a bunch of records from Hbase, then the user/admin realises his/her
mistake, and wants to refetch those records from a previous point in time.

> In order to support a particular kind of database "snapshot" feature which doesn't require
copying data, we came up with the idea for a special SnapshotScanner that would present a
view of your data at some point in the past.  The primary use case for this would be to be
able to recover particular data/rows (but not all data, like a global rollback) should they
have somehow been messed up (application fault, application bug, user error, etc.).
