Subject Re: Enable BLOOMFILTER on existing tables
Date Sat, 09 Jul 2011 01:42:36 GMT
You can update existing data through manually triggering compaction. After you make a change
like this, go to the hbase shell and execute:

  major_compaction 'yourtablename'

After major compaction all of the store files for the table will abide the most recent schema
Best regards,
