Subject Re: BulkLoad 200GB table with one region. Is it OK?
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 19:08:34 GMT
Hi Serega,

Bulk load just "push" the file into an HBase region, so there should not be
any issue. Split however might take some time because HBase will have to
split it again and again util it become small enough. So if you max file
size is 10GB, it will split it to 100GB then 50GB then 25GB then 12GB then
6GB... Each time, everything will be re-written. a LOT of wasted IOs.

So response is: Yes, HBase can handle BUT it's not a good practice. Better
to split the table before and generate the bulk based on the splited
regions. Also, it might affect the others tables and the performances
because HBase will have to do massive IOs, which at the end might impact
the performances.
