Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6942) Endpoint implementation for bulk delete rows
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 04:49:03 GMT

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-6942:
--------------------------------------

Hmm... Most of these parameters can be controlled with a scan.
For example to delete only some CFs, just configure the scan that way. I don't think we should
make it more complicated/flexible than this.

What you are describing is another use case. What if I only want to delete the column that
I am describing with the scan? (Now I would have include the superset of all possible columns
in the passed Delete object)

If folks need more complicated logic they should write their own endpoint (now they have an
example)... That is whole point of coprocessors, so that we do not have to anticipate every
possible usecase :)

The beauty of this approach is that we can just pass a Scan object (along with just a delete
type maybe) and have the endpoint do its work.

Anyway, I do not feel strongly about this. If you think that we need more flexibility and
passing a Delete is the best way to pursue this, then let's do that... As long as the simple
case is still simple.

> We can provide an end point implementation for doing a bulk deletion of rows(based on
a scan) at the server side. This can reduce the time taken for such an operation as right
now it need to do a scan to client and issue delete(s) using rowkeys.
