Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6428) Pluggable Compaction policies
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 06:51:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6428?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13482163#comment-13482163

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-6428:
--------------------------------------

Hmm... This actually would be much simpler if the entire Compactor class could be pluggable;
along with some refactoring of that class into an extensible interface.
I guess that's what HBASE-5334 has in mind.

> For some usecases is useful to allow more control over how KVs get compacted.
> For example one could envision storing old versions of a KV separate HFiles, which then
rarely have to be touched/cached by queries querying for new data.
> In addition these date ranged HFile can be easily used for backups while maintaining
historical data.
> This would be a major change, allowing compactions to provide multiple targets (not just
a filter).
