Subject Re: Excessive .META scans

Can you tell who's doing it? You could enable IPC debug for a few secs
to see who's coming in with scans.

You could also try to disable pre-fetching, set hbase.client.prefetch.limit to 0

Also, is it even causing a problem or you're just worried it might
since it doesn't look "normal"?
