Subject Re: Durability of in-memory column family
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2015 02:47:00 GMT
Hi Ming,

In memory means that HBase will try to keep the data in memory as much as
possible for fast response time, but at no time HBase will put your data at
risk. You data will still go first in the WAL and be persisted into disk.

The in memory option is to tell HBase to try to keep this data in the
memory cache (Block cache) as much as possible.
