> Currently, HBase has one WAL per region server. 
> Whenever there is any latency in the write pipeline (due to whatever reasons such as
n/w blip, a node in the pipeline having a bad disk, etc), the overall write latency suffers.

> Jonathan Hsieh and I analyzed various approaches to tackle this issue. We also looked
at HBASE-5699, which talks about adding concurrent multi WALs. Along with performance numbers,
we also focussed on design simplicity, minimum impact on MTTR & Replication, and compatibility
with 0.96 and 0.98. Considering all these parameters, we propose a new HLog implementation
with WAL Switching functionality.
> Please find attached the design doc for the same. It introduces the WAL Switching feature,
and experiments/results of a prototype implementation, showing the benefits of this feature.
> The second goal of this work is to serve as a building block for concurrent multiple
WALs feature.
> Please review the doc.
