------------------------------------

             Summary: Option to make data regions not writable when index regions are not
available
                 Key: PHOENIX-2221
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-2221
             Project: Phoenix
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Devaraj Das


In one usecase, it was deemed better to not accept writes when the index regions are unavailable
for any reason (as opposed to disabling the index and the queries doing bigger data-table
scans).
The idea is that the index regions are kept consistent with the data regions, and when a query
runs against the index regions, one can be reasonably sure that the query ran with the most
recent data in the data regions. When the index regions are unavailable, the writes to the
data table are rejected. Read queries off of the index regions would have deterministic performance
(and on the other hand if the index is disabled, then the read queries would have to go to
the data regions until the indexes are rebuilt, and the queries would suffer).
