You mean HBase as the sink for your log emitters?

The pattern I usually see is that there is intermediary, a flume or
scribe pushing the logs up into hdfs and then the log events are
hoisted up into hbase to field queries [1, 2]

though sounds like you are all small data so one cf should do you.
Figure how you are going to query it.  That'll define your schema.
