Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14227) Fold special cased MOB APIs into existing APIs
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2015 08:36:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14227?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14700939#comment-14700939

Jingcheng Du commented on HBASE-14227:
--------------------------------------

I mean we'd better not compact the normal and mob cf together.
I have a way to fold the compactMob into the existing APIs.
As you know, the mob is stored in a dummy mob region (with a constant name). We can use the
exiting APIs compactRegion and majorCompactRegion to do this.
# If the region name is a mob region name, we do compaction of mob.
# Otherwise do normal compaction.
How about this?

> There are a number of APIs that came in with MOB that are not new actions for HBase,
simply new actions for a MOB implementation:
> - compactMob
> - compactMobs
> - majorCompactMob
> - majorCompactMobs
> - getMobCompactionState
> And in HBaseAdmin:
> - validateMobColumnFamily
> Remove these special cases from the Admin API where possible by folding them into existing
APIs.
> We definitely don't need one method for a singleton and another for collections.
> Ideally we will not have any APIs named *Mob when finished, whether MOBs are in use on
a table or not should be largely an internal detail. Exposing as schema option would be fine,
this conforms to existing practice for other features.
> Marking critical because I think removing the *Mob special cased APIs should be a precondition
for release of this feature either in 2.0 or as a backport.
