One of the first cases we get to see with Hbase is loading it up with Data, most of the time we will have some sort of data in some format like CSV availalble and we would like to load it in Hbase, lets take a quick look on how does the procedure looks like:
lets examine our example data by looking at the simple structure that I have got for an industrial sensor
once the mapreduce job is completed, return back to hbase shell and execute
hbase(main):001:0> scan sensor
you should now see the data in the table
Importtsv statement generates massive amount of logs, so make sure you have enough space in /var/logs, its always better to have it mounted on a seperate directories in real cluster to avoid operational stop becuase of logs filling the partition.
