Subject Re: Hbase filter-SubstringComparator vs full text search indexing
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 17:41:09 GMT

If you need to scan lots of log messages and process them use HBase
(or Hive or Pig or simply HDFS+MR)
If you need to query your data set by anything in the text of the log
message, use ElasticSearch or Solr 4.0 or Sensei or just Lucene.
