Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3904) HConnection.isTableAvailable returns true even with not all regions available.
Date Fri, 20 May 2011 17:55:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3904?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036959#comment-13036959

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-3904:

My proposal is based on the observation that Vidhyashankar (and other users) used a loop to
check for table availability.
This is equivalent to calling the newly introduced createTableSync() method where there is
no need to write the loop above.

bq. Hence there might be a case when all regions are indeed fully assigned in META but it
is just that the master is yet to populate META with the rest of the regions.

What Vidhyashankar meant was that the existing entries for the table in .META. carried server
information, but there were more regions to be assigned by Master which weren't in .META.

> This function as per the java doc is supposed to return true iff "all the regions in
the table are available". But if the table is still being created this function may return
inconsistent results (For example, when a table with a large number of split keys is created).
