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

Unfortunately I lost the stack trace overnight. But it does seem related to
compaction, because now that the compaction tool is done, I don't see the
issue anymore. I will run our incremental major compaction tool again and
see if I can reproduce the issue.

On the plus side the system stayed stable and eventually recovered,
although it did suffer all those timeouts.
