Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14925) Develop HBase shell command/tool to list table's region info through command line
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2017 00:21:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14925?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15832660#comment-15832660

ronan stokes commented on HBASE-14925:

Here's one mechanism to get the regions for a particular table from the shell - it would be
relatively easy to turn it into a command. It's a little hackish as it reads an internal variable
of the shell admin instance but when integrated as a command, it could use an appropriate

# list_regions
# return list of regions for a table as an array
# results are ordered by start key
# each element of list is hash of { "name","size", "requests" }
def list_regions(tgtTable)
   hbadmin = @hbase.admin(@hbase)
   hbjadmin = hbadmin.instance_variable_get("@admin")
   cluster_status = hbjadmin.getClusterStatus()
   master = cluster_status.getMaster()
   results = Array.new
   for server in cluster_status.getServers()
      for name,region in cluster_status.getLoad(server).getRegionsLoad()
          region_name = region.getNameAsString()
          regionStoreFileSize = region.getStorefileSizeMB()
          regionRequests = region.getRequestsCount()
          if region_name.start_with? tgtTable
              results << { "server" => server, "name" => region_name, "size" =>
regionStoreFileSize, "requests" => regionRequests }
    results.sort!{ |a,b| a["name"].split(',')[1] <=> b["name"].split(',')[1] }
   return results

> I am going through the hbase shell commands to see if there is anything I can use to
get all the regions info just for a particular table. I don’t see any such command that
provides me that information.
> It would be better to have a command that provides region info, start key, end key etc
taking a table name as the input parameter. This is available through HBase UI on clicking
on a particular table's link
> A tool/shell command to get a list of regions for a table or all tables in a tabular
structured output (that is machine readable)
