Subject RE: Help on HBase shell alter command usage
Date Tue, 15 Dec 2009 06:36:19 GMT
Thanks for your quick answer, I have managed to change the column family.

I am using hbase 0.20 now, I used hbase 0.19 some time ago, in my memory, the comression option

Are you using hbase 0.20?  If so, there is no 'compress'.  Its NONE, LZO, or
GZIP (You'll have to build lzo yourself.  See hbase wiki for how).

See the shell help.  It has examples of how to change parameters on column
