Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-451) Remove HTableDescriptor from HRegionInfo
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2011 20:55:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-451?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13043040#comment-13043040

stack commented on HBASE-451:
-----------------------------

I mucked around and got it posted by applying to my own git repo then made new 'plain' git
patch.  That uploaded to hbase.git on reviews.apache.org.  My guess is that its dumb and explains
output of git diff at top-level of hbase checkout.

> There is an HRegionInfo for every region in HBase. Currently HRegionInfo also contains
the HTableDescriptor (the schema). That means we store the schema n times where n is the number
of regions in the table.
> Additionally, for every region of the same table that the region server has open, there
is a copy of the schema. Thus it is stored in memory once for each open region.
> If HRegionInfo merely contained the table name the HTableDescriptor could be stored in
a separate file and easily found.
