Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3904) HConnection.isTableAvailable returns true even with not all regions available.
Date Fri, 20 May 2011 19:01:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3904?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13037005#comment-13037005

stack commented on HBASE-3904:

bq. 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. yet.

I'm not sure how this is possible but I may not have done sufficient study.

bq. Server info was initially omitted.

Yes, thats how it works.  Later, on assignment, the server gets filled in.

On your patch:

+              if (!(info.isOffline() || info.isSplit())) {
+                regionCount.incrementAndGet();
+              }

This is good Ted.

This is good too --> '+      MetaScanner.metaScan(conf, visitor, tableName);'

Vidhya, do you want to try Ted's patch?  Its client-side only patch.

@Ted A unit test would be nice.

> 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).
