Subject Re: newbie question on stopping Hbase

Instinctively think second to be the cause.
Did you try flushing it to disk and then killing and found strange behavior? - just one more
experiment to remove the role of instinct :-) Thanks!

Hello Hbase Users!

I installed the Hbase distribution on a one node cluster (my test linux box)
I wrote a small client that creates a table, and inset some data in it.

Then if I do a

pkill -9 java

and restart Hbase, everything is gone (no table and thus no data in that
table any more).

I would have expected that hbase recovers well from such a 'kill' (which
could simulate a node crash).
Am I missing something?
Is that because I only use one node?
is that because the data is in memory only and needs to be flushed to disk?
