Date Mon, 31 Aug 2015 08:48:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6613?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14723214#comment-14723214

Lars George commented on HBASE-6613:

Should we close this as superseded by HBASE-13103?

> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: HBASE-6613
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6613
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: master, regionserver, util
>    Affects Versions: 0.94.1
>            Reporter: Ionut Ignatescu
> Consider an usecase where row keys has an increasing value(time-series data for example)
and data retention is set to a concrete value(60 days for example).
> After a period of time, longer than retention, empty regions will appear. This will cause
high memory use on region servers.
> In my opinion, regions merge could be part of major compaction or another tool should
be provided. From my understading, it is possible to merge 2 empty regions without make table
offline, but it's not possible to merge one empty region with a non-empty region without close/unassing
this regions.
