Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-10309) Add support to delete empty regions in 0.94.x series
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 13:02:52 GMT
AcCud created HBASE-10309:

             Summary: Add support to delete empty regions in 0.94.x series
                 Key: HBASE-10309
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10309
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: AcCud
             Fix For: 0.94.16

My use case: I have several tables where keys start with a timestamp. Because of this and
combined with the fact that I have set a 15 days retention period, after a period of time
results empty regions.
I am sure that no write will occur in these region.
It would be nice to have a tool to delete regions without being necessary to stop the cluster.
The easiest way for me is to have a tool that is able to delete all empty regions, but there
wouldn't be any problem to specify which region to delete.
Something like:
deleteRegion <tableName> <region>
