Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6427) Pluggable compaction policies via coprocessors
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 03:44:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6427?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13424680#comment-13424680
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-6427:
--------------------------------------

Ted, you are trying to redesign the overall coprocessor API.
I would prefer that we can keep the API as is, and then work on ways to make better sense
of the scanners as part of a different jira.

As Andy said a major raison d'etre for coprocessors is to extend HBase. Nobody would just
run a 3rd party coprocessor (unless that party is highly trusted). A coprocessor could call
System.exit() and shut down the RegionServer... And that was a design choice.

> When implementing higher level stores on top of HBase it is necessary to allow dynamic
control over how long KVs must be kept around.
> Semi-static config options for ColumnFamilies (# of version or TTL) is not sufficient.
> This can be done with a few additional coprocessor hooks, or by makeing Store.ScanInfo
pluggable.

> The simplest way to achieve this is to have a pluggable class to determine the smallestReadpoint
for Region. That way outside code can control what KVs to retain.
