Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5604) HLog replay tool that generates HFiles for use by LoadIncrementalHFiles.
Date Sat, 24 Mar 2012 20:40:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5604?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13237661#comment-13237661

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-5604:
--------------------------------------

Yep, that's what I have in mind. Can do PITR within HBase's time resolution.

We have the requirement to keep historical data around for our customers.

Replication is for disaster recovery (main cluster died, we will do that too).
Backpup with PITR would be for "Sh*t, we messed up some data can you restore the data as of
X?" type scenarios.

> Just an idea I had. Might be useful for restore of a backup using the HLogs.
> This could an M/R (with a mapper per HLog file).
> The tool would get a timerange and a (set of) table(s). We'd pick the right HLogs based
on time before the M/R job is started and then have a mapper per HLog file.
> The mapper would then go through the HLog, filter all WALEdits that didn't fit into the
time range or are not any of the tables and then uses HFileOutputFormat to generate HFiles.
> Would need to indicate the splits we want, probably from a live table.
