Subject Re: How Long Will HBase Hold A Row Write Lock?

I'll paste a thread dump later, writing this from my phone  :-)

So the same issue has happened at different times for different regions,
but I couldn't see that the region in question was the one being compacted,
either this time or earlier. Although I might have missed an earlier
correlation in the logs where the issue started just after the compaction

Usually a compaction for this table's regions take around 5-10 minutes,
much less for its smaller column family which is block cache enabled,
around a minute or less, and 5-10 minutes for the much larger one for which
we have block cache disabled in the schema, because we don't ever read it
in the primary cluster. So the only impact on reads would be from that
smaller column family which takes less than a minute to compact.

But the issue once started doesn't seem to recover for a long time, long
past when any compaction on the region itself could impact anything. The
compaction tool which is our own code has long since moved to other
