Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-2376) Add special SnapshotScanner which presents view of all data at some time in the past
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 03:16:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13501681#comment-13501681

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-2376:
--------------------------------------

HBASE-4071 is a bit misnamed. It introduces MIN_VERSIONS. So setting TTL and MIN_VERSIONS
does give you exactly what you describe above (I think).

> In order to support a particular kind of database "snapshot" feature which doesn't require
copying data, we came up with the idea for a special SnapshotScanner that would present a
view of your data at some point in the past.  The primary use case for this would be to be
able to recover particular data/rows (but not all data, like a global rollback) should they
have somehow been messed up (application fault, application bug, user error, etc.).
