Subject newbie question on stopping Hbase
Date Thu, 26 Nov 2009 10:53:13 GMT
Hello Hbase Users!

I installed the Hbase distribution on a one node cluster (my test linux box)
I wrote a small client that creates a table, and inset some data in it.

Then if I do a

pkill -9 java

and restart Hbase, everything is gone (no table and thus no data in that 
table any more).

I would have expected that hbase recovers well from such a 'kill' (which 
could simulate a node crash).
Am I missing something?
Is that because I only use one node?
is that because the data is in memory only and needs to be flushed to disk?
