Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11116) Allow ReplicationSink to write to tables when READONLY is set
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2015 06:23:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11116?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14700790#comment-14700790

Ashish Singhi commented on HBASE-11116:

This can be solved using ACLs. Should we resolve it as Won't Fix ?

> A common practice with MySQL replication is to enable the read_only flag (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_read_only)
on slaves in order to disallow any user changes to a slave, while allowing replication from
the master to flow in.  In HBase, enabling the READONLY field on a table will cause ReplicationSink
to fail to apply changes.  It'd be ideal to have the default behavior allow replication to
continue going through, a configurable option to influence this type of behavior, or perhaps
even a flag that manipulates a peer's state (e.g. via add_peer) that dictates if replication
can write to READONLY tables.
