Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1183) New MR splitting algorithm and other new features need a way to split a key range in N chunks
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 01:48:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1183?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13131261#comment-13131261

Jonathan Gray commented on HBASE-1183:

Wow, really got me thinking back.  I honestly don't remember exactly why.

We convert them to BigInteger so we can do:  (stop - start) / numsplits = interval

Something related to signed/unsigned?  Reading the code it does seem okay.  Good thing I didn't
write a unit test.

Are you seeing that it's broken in some way?  I can spend a little more time looking at it
if necessary.

> For HBASE-1172 and other functionality coming soon, we need to be able to take a [start,stop)
range and divide it into chunks.
> For example, we have 10 regions but want to run 30 maps.  We need to divide each region
into three key ranges for the start/stop of each scanner.
> Implementing using java.math.BigInteger
> Will also include a couple additional helpers in Bytes to make life easy.
