HBase Quota Support in CDH 6

HBase Quota Support in CDH 6


Are HBase Quotas supported in CDH 6.x?


The hbase.quota.enabled property defaults to false but this property is not listed under the HBase service configuration in Cloudera Manager 6.

Yes, they are. The hbase.quota.enabled property is not displayed in CDH. It must be added via a safety valve snippet under "Hbase Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hbase-site.xml" in the HBase Configuration tab.


Name: hbase.quota.enabled

Value: true

Description: Enable hbase quotas


Also note that to then deploy the change requires a restart of multiple services, such as Impala, CDSW etc


EDIT: I'm using CDH 6.2
