How about loading the data as data frame or RDD and just save the data to new salted table and drop earlier table. I feel spark is very very fast than MR. Just my idea though

You can use UPSERT SELECT from the old table to the new table and do this with a single statement: https://phoenix.apache.org/language/index.html#upsert_select

Make sure you set your timeouts high if the table is big.

Thanks,

Adding salting to an existing table would mean changing Rowkey of each Row in HBase. I dont think it possible without re-writing entire table with new RowKey(salted). Are you ok with rewriting entire table with new Rowkey?

Hi,
Is there a way to add salt buckets to an existing table with data?
