Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5509) MR based copier for copying HFiles (trunk version)
Date Sun, 04 Mar 2012 05:46:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5509?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13221796#comment-13221796
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-5509:
--------------------------------------

bq. For getStoreFileList():{code}
+   * @param families
+   *          a comma separated list of column families for which we need to
{code} I think List<String> may be better data type for families parameter. This would
make this method more general in that 

Families is taken from the command line; it might be (1) an indicator for all CFs, or  (2)
a list of specific CFs. In the former case we cannot get the list of CFs before we know the
RegionServer, which only happens later.

Again, this is not my code. I can refactor and have extra command line flags and extra code
for this.

> This copier is a modification of the distcp tool in HDFS. It does the following:
> 1. List out all the regions in the HBase cluster for the required table
> 2. Write the above out to a file
> 3. Each mapper 
>    3.1 lists all the HFiles for a given region by querying the regionserver
>    3.2 copies all the HFiles
>    3.3 outputs success if the copy succeeded, failure otherwise. Failed regions are retried
in another loop
> 4. Mappers are placed on nodes which have maximum locality for a given region to speed
up copying
