Subject delete does not free hdd space
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 07:17:08 GMT
I need to free hdd space, so I want to delete some unimportant rows
I'm using Thrift call
deleteAllRow(TABLE, ROWID);
to perform deletion of about 10 000 row (when I loaded them it was about 
30Gb). When I perform this operation I checked thru hbase shell that 
rows are deleted, but used space of the disk is not changed
I performed compact and major_compact operations (they returned 0 
processed rows) but space is not changed too.

So quesition what should I also do to indicate hbase physically remove 
this rows
