Subject Re: Can a compaction storm occur in hbase 1.0
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:47:13 GMT
The default configuration is (likely) only using one thread for 
performing compactions (really, one thread for small and one thread for 
big compactions). As such, yes, compactions in one RegionServer would be 
performed serially.

But, don't forget, you probably have multiple RegionServers which all 
host regions.
