Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3729) Get cells via shell with a time range predicate
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2011 03:41:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3729?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13016229#comment-13016229

Eric Charles commented on HBASE-3729:

I applied 3729-v3.txt, and now:

hbase(main):001:0> get 'test', 'row1', { TIMERANGE => [0, 3000000000000], VERSIONS =>
COLUMN                   CELL
 cf:a                    timestamp=1301984853863, value=value2
 cf:a                    timestamp=1301984830139, value=value1
2 row(s) in 0.4100 seconds

==> Great!

hbase(main):002:0> get 'test', 'row1', { TIMERANGE => [0, 3000000000000]}
COLUMN                   CELL
 cf:a                    timestamp=1301984853863, value=value2
1 row(s) in 0.0620 seconds

==> If versions is not specified, it does not return the expected list.

I think an error message will be better suited, otherwise many users will simply provide the
TIMERANGE predicate without the VERSIONS, and will think there's only one cell, but there
may be more... So VERSIONS should be mandatory if TIMERANGE is provided. The other/better?
options would be to let return all versions if VERSIONS is not provided.

> HBase shell allows to specify a timestamp to get a value
> - get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => 'c1', TIMESTAMP => ts1}
> If you don't give the exact timestamp, you get nothing... so it's difficult to get the
cell previous versions.
> It would be fine to have a "time range" predicate based get.
> The shell syntax could be (depending on technical feasibility)
> - get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => 'c1', TIMERANGE => (start_timestamp, end_timestamp)}
