Subject Re: Using HBase for Deduping
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2013 20:48:30 GMT
You could do with a 2-pronged approach here i.e. some MR and some HBase
lookups. I don't think this is the best solution either given the # of
events you will get.

FWIW, the solution below again relies on the assumption that if a event is
duped in the same hour it won't have a dupe outside of that hour boundary.
If it can have then you are better of with running a MR job with the
current hour + another 3 hours of data or an MR job with the current hour +
the HBase table as input to the job too (i.e. no HBase lookups, just read
the HFile directly) ?

- Run a MR job which de-dupes events for the current hour i.e. only runs on
1 hour worth of data.
- Mark records which you were not able to de-dupe in the current run
- For the records that you were not able to de-dupe, check against HBase
whether you saw that event in the past. If you did, you can drop the
current event or update the event to the new value (based on your business
- Save all the de-duped events (via HBase bulk upload)

Sorry if I just rambled along, but without knowing the whole problem it's
very tough to come up with a probable solution. So correct my assumptions
and we could drill down more.
