Can we configure HBase to use multiple WAL Codecs?

avatar
Expert Contributor

We have a customer who wants to enable HBase to use multiple WAL Codecs at the same time. Is this possible?

E.g. Phoenix configuration instructions ask the user to update the value for hbase.regionserver.wal.codec. However, the customer also wants to use the NGData HBase/Solr Indexer which also requires a custom value for h.r.wal.code.

Can HBase RegionServer configuration accommodate two WAL codecs in parallel?

I'm not expert in this subject, but looks like HDP Search - Hbase connector uses replication and not WAL Codec, this way I think you can use both, Solr Connector + Phoenix.
