Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-18511) Default no regions on master
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2017 10:36:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18511?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sean Busbey updated HBASE-18511:
--------------------------------
    Release Note: 
Changes the configuration hbase.balancer.tablesOnMaster from list of table names that the
can carry (with 'none' meaning no tables on the master) to instead be a boolean that is set
to true if master carries tables/regions and false if it does not. If true, the master acts
like any regionserver.

If false, then the master carries no tables. This is the default for hbase-2.0.0.

Another boolean configuration, hbase.balancer.tablesOnMaster.systemTablesOnly, when set to
true, enables hbase.balancer.tablesOnMaster and makes it so the master hosts system tables
exclusively (the long-time deploy mode of master branch and branch-2 up until this commit).

The change of hbase.balancer.tablesOnMaster from String list to boolean and
the addition of a simple boolean to enable system-tables on Master was done
to constrain what operators might ask for via this master configuration.
Stipulating what tables are bound to the Master server verges into
regionserver grouping territory, a more robust means of specifying table
and server combinations. Operators should use this latter if they want
layouts more exotic than those supplied by the provided booleans.

> Let this be umbrella issue for no-regions-on-master as default deploy (as it was in branch-1).
> Also need to make sure we can run WITH regions on master; in particular system tables
with RPC short-circuit as it is now in hbase master.
> Background is that master branch carried a change that allowed Master carry regions.
On top of this improvement on branch-1, Master defaulted to carry system tables only. No release
was made with this configuration. Now we are going to cut the 2.0.0 release, the decision
is that hbase-2 should have the same layout as hbase-1 so this issue implements the undoing
of Master carrying system tables by default (though the capability remains).
