Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4321) Add more comprehensive region split calculator
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2011 16:07:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4321?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13096084#comment-13096084

Jonathan Hsieh commented on HBASE-4321:

I think the main concern is that this is a public static abstract. I can pull the Range out
and make it a separate file.  Would it makes sense to pull this out in to a subpackage? o.a.h.h.util.splits?

I'm not clear if the generic a concern.  Is it?

The start keys and end keys can be whatever, I wrote it generically to make testing easy and
straight forward. 

In a follow on patch, the start/end keys are the actual start and end keys of a region --
not the .META. rows.  Basically, I subclass and wrap hbckinfos and use hbckinfo.metaData.getStartKey()
and hbckinfo.metaData.getEndKey() as the range's getStartKey/getEndKeys.  

I know Todd wants to do an offline meta table rebuild that just looks at .regioninfo's on
HDFS.  So for that case, the Range would subclass wrap an HRegionInfo and use hri.getStartKey(),
and hri.getEndKey().

> Hbck currently scans through meta one entry at a time, only keeping a reference to the
previous meta entry.  This is insufficient for capturing all the possible problems in meta
and needs something more to properly identify holes, overlaps, duplicate start keys, and otherwise
invalid meta entries.
> Ideally, this calculator could also be used online interrogating an existing meta (HBASE-4058),
and also used to generate a completely new meta offline just from regioninfo and in hdfs (HBASE-3505).
