Subject Re: OOM when fetching all versions of single row
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2014 19:02:16 GMT

I  think you're side stepping the issue concerning schema design. 

Since HBase isn't my core focus, I also have to ask since when has heap sizes over 16GB been
the norm? 
(Really 8GB seems to be quite a large heap size... )
