Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-10884) [REST] Do not disable block caching when scanning
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 00:41:19 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10884?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Misty Stanley-Jones updated HBASE-10884:

    Release Note: The REST gateway no longer disables block cache when issuing Scans to the
cluster, and in this way, Scans now behave the same as Gets.

> The REST gateway pessimistically disables block caching when issuing Scans to the cluster,
using Scan#setCacheBlocks(false) in ScannerResultGenerator. It does not do this when issuing
Gets on behalf of HTTP clients in RowResultGenerator. This is an old idea now, the reasons
for doing so lost sometime back in the era when HBase walked the earth with dinosaurs (<
0.20). We probably should not be penalizing REST scans in this way.
