Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5842) Passing shell commands as an argument
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 06:05:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5842?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13260267#comment-13260267

stack commented on HBASE-5842:

We used to have it so you could pass a formatter class that the shell would use.  Default
is console formatting.  We used to have an html output one which was useful when you could
type in shell commands on ui and get results as an html page.  Another formatter would emit
results per line so greppable.

>                 Key: HBASE-5842
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5842
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: shell
>    Affects Versions: 0.94.0
>            Reporter: Harsh J
>            Priority: Minor
> Many times we've required scans of .META. to analyze issues with the cluster we work
on, and to have the result in a file we can pass around we usually end up doing something
> {{echo "scan '.META.'| hbase shell > meta-scan.txt}}
> This can rather be simplified as something like the following instead, with support for
a commands reading argument:
> {{hbase shell -c "scan '.META.'"}}
> [Note though: File reading is possible already, i.e. {{hbase shell file.hs}}, but then
thats two steps and we usually don't keep a file around for just a meta table scan.]
