---------------------------------------------------------------

Over in HBASE-7912, Stack made comments on draft version of the doc:
{quote}
I reviewed the doc. It is nice and high-level pitched properly at a 'user'. It is in msword
format. Can we do it up in refguide format and as a patch on rb? There are some minor issues
that could be better addressed via comments up on rb. Looks like backup is well-worthy of
its own, dedicated chapter.

Nit: On usage, the backupid exists nowhere in the system except as output from the backup
command? Later it is explained what it is which is helpful. Also, later again it is explained
that it does live as part of the backup history. Could be good to call out these facts earlier.

Could also say how long a backup is going to take roughly. Me as an operator would be afraid
to run a backup because I'd think the command could run for ever on my 100 node cluster. Reading
later in the manual, it seems that it could start and return immediately and then I check
in on status. Would be good to surface some of that up here at start of doc. to allay the
fears of the poor operator.
