Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-14092) Add -noLock and -noBalanceSwitch options to hbck
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:28:04 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14092?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Elliott Clark updated HBASE-14092:
    Attachment: HBASE-14092-v1.patch

It's not really possible to tell if the user wants to not turn the balancer off. If the balancer
is on there's a possibility that hbck will report inconsistent even though things are just
fine. So not locking is all about how ok the user is with that chance.

If this command is being run in the background for alerting and flakey alerts are filtered
then they are ok.

If they are running this command to see if action is needed then they probably aren't ok with
a flakey result.

> HBCK is sometimes used as a way to check the health of the cluster. When doing that it's
not necessary to turn off the balancer. As such it's not needed to lock other runs of hbck
> We should add the --no-lock and --no-balancer command line flags.
