Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7928) Scanning .META. with startRow and/or stopRow is not giving proper results
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 05:58:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7928?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13586825#comment-13586825

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-7928:

Ok so solved the problem.  As Stack correctly said, incase of META the entry is nothing but
the regioninfos.
So which means it has the regionname followed by two commas and the region id.
So when the user tries to set the start row as 'b'. The METAKEYCOMPARATOR tries to search
for ',' in the key.  In our case this is not found.
So ideally what we should do is append ",,00000000000000" in case of start row
and incase of stoprow ",,99999999999999". This will help us to exactly apply start and stop
row for META scan.

Now one thing to see is at what level should we do this,
Because in case of META scans internally happening we already have the current format in it.
 Only an user induced META scan has to undergo some changes to the start and stop row.
I tweaked and got the required output but that is just ugly.
Could someone suggest a better approach?

> This code will not return any result even if there is 10 tables with names starting with
"d" to "w", including one table called "entry". If you comment the setStopRow you will get
results, but will still get rows starting with "d" even if setStartRow is set to "e".
> Same code using with a user table is working fine.
> Facing the same issue with the shell.
> scan '.META.' , {STARTROW => 'e', LIMIT => 10} is returning rows starting by "d".
> scan '.META.' , {STARTROW => 'e', STOPROW => 'v', LIMIT => 10} is not returning
