Ted Yu commented on HBASE-14417:
--------------------------------

During offline discussion, Vladimir suggested that we record the list of bulk loaded hfiles
into hbase:backup table at the end of bulk load.

> Currently, incremental backup is based on WAL files. Bulk data loading bypasses WALs
for obvious reasons, breaking incremental backups. The only way to continue backups after
bulk loading is to create new full backup of a table. This may not be feasible for customers
who do bulk loading regularly (say, every day).
