Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1755) Putting 'Meta' table into ZooKeeper
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2011 18:05:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1755?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13009246#comment-13009246

ryan rawson commented on HBASE-1755:

I was originally excited about this but I have recently become not a fan.  I think we should
not store anything but temporary data in ZK.  The reason is there are several really good
properties that we have now that we'd lose:

- Easy backup, just stop hbase, copy /hbase and you have a _complete_ backup.
- Snapshot abilities, right now if you were to take a FS level snapshot you'd have a perfect
point in time backup.
- There are solid tools for managing our hbase files, but none for ZK, this is a "minor" issue,
but still the code would need to be written anyways.
