Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-12947) Replicating DDL statements like create from one cluster to another
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 18:42:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12947?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14299030#comment-14299030

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-12947:

How would you handle conflicting concurrent schema updates? While HBase schemas are in many
ways simpler than RDBMS schemas, you might find this paper about how Google's F1 manages distributed
schema change interesting: http://db.disi.unitn.eu/pages/VLDBProgram/pdf/industry/p764-rae.pdf
. We'd have some of the same implementation challenges. Start by reading section 4.2.

>                 Key: HBASE-12947
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12947
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Replication
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Prabhu Joseph
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> Problem:
>       When tables are created dynamically in Hbase cluster, the Replication feature can't
be used as the new table does not exist in peer cluster. To use the replication, we need to
create same table in peer cluster also.
>    Having API to replicate the create table statement at peer cluster will be more helpful
in such cases.
> Solution:
>     create 'table','cf',replication => true , peerFlag => true
>     if peerFlag = true, the table with the column family has to be created at peer
> cluster.
>    Special cases like enabling replication at peer cluster also for cyclic replication
has to be considered.
