Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8369) MapReduce over snapshot files
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 22:11:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8369?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13636931#comment-13636931

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-8369:

Quickly went through the code.
Will revisit when TODO's are addressed in next patch.
+    public void close() throws IOException {
+      if (this.scanner != null) {
+        this.scanner.close();
+      }
+      if (region != null) {
+        region.closeRegionOperation();
+        region.close(true);
I think region.closeRegionOperation() should be placed inside finally block because this.scanner.close()
may throw IOException.
+   * @param rootDir Root directory for HBase instance
+   * @param conf
+  public static HRegion createHRegion(final HRegionInfo info, final Path rootDir, final Path
+                                      final Configuration conf,
Param tableDir missing in javadoc.
-  private void restoreWALs() throws IOException {
+  public void restoreWALs() throws IOException {
I don't see the above method referenced in the patch. Why making it public ?

> The idea is to add an InputFormat, which can run the mapreduce job over snapshot files
directly bypassing hbase server layer. The IF is similar in usage to TableInputFormat, taking
a Scan object from the user, but instead of running from an online table, it runs from a table
snapshot. We do one split per region in the snapshot, and open an HRegion inside the RecordReader.
A RegionScanner is used internally for doing the scan without any HRegionServer bits. 
> Users have been asking and searching for ways to run MR jobs by reading directly from
hfiles, so this allows new use cases if reading from stale data is ok:
>  - Take snapshots periodically, and run MR jobs only on snapshots.
>  - Export snapshots to remote hdfs cluster, run the MR jobs at that cluster without HBase
>  - (Future use case) Combine snapshot data with online hbase data: Scan from yesterday's
snapshot, but read today's data from online hbase cluster.
