Subject Re: How to make the client fast fail
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 13:59:23 GMT
Be careful for what you wish. 

You want to fail fast, ok, but when you shorten the HBase timers, you can run in to other
The simplest solution is to use a timer  / timeout thread in your application. 

You want to do it this way because you are asking for an application specific solution while
HBase is a shared resource. 

Failing fast and failing often is no way to run an HBase/Hadoop cluster.  ;-)
