Subject Re: split table data into two or more tables
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 18:59:34 GMT

The rationale is that I have a mapred job that adds new records to an hbase table, constantly.
The next mapred job selects these new records, but it must iterate over all records and check
if it is a candidate for selection.
Since there are too many old records iterating though them in a cluster of 2 nodes +1 master
takes about 2 days. So I thought, splitting them into two tables must reduce this time, and
as soon as I figure out that there is no more new record left in one of the new tables I will
not run mapred job on it.

Currently, we have 7 regions including ROOT and META.

May I ask the rationale behind this ?
Were you aiming for higher write throughput ?

Please also tell us how many regions you have in the current table.


BTW please consider upgrading to 0.94.4
