Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5241) Deletes should not mask Puts that come after it.
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 02:44:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5241?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13209085#comment-13209085

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-5241:

If two things happen at the same time there *is* no right order. The fact that we have limited
timer resolution is not that relevant here.

We just discussed another scenario internally here, were we have application level replicas
of a table. One way to do this is have the client write to two HBase clusters and also have
a catchup background task which copies older (before we started the dual-writing) cells to
the replica. We will use this a lot to catch up standby clusters, etc. This would also not
work any longer.

Anyway, if there are other committers that feel that we need this I won't veto it (but I am
-0.5 on it). And it must configurable without any performance detriment when disabled (i.e.
delete still seeks to the next column). I'd also vote to default off.

Maybe some of the other committers would like to comment? @Stack, @Ted, @Todd?
