HBase table with snappy compression and without snappy compression



I have a table in HBASE and I am tuning the table for performance. I applied SNAPPY compression for that pupose while creating a HBASE Table.



My use case is I need to have table in HBASE and access through Impala.



I created a external table in hive and using serde i connected with the HBase table.



Is that a right approach.



now there are two tables in HBASE with compression and without compression. How do I find the space occupied by the table in HBASE?


What is the syntax for looking for the table size in HBase?
