Hbase snapshot split.


Hi All,
 It is possible to split a snapshot in 3 parts. I have an HBase snapshot and I want to split them in three snapshots then merge it. Is this possible?

Hbase version = 2.3

Thanks for any comments.

Hello @TR7_BRYLE 


It's an old Post, yet trying to answer the Query. If the eventual goal of splitting 1 Snapshot into 3 Snapshots is to Merge them, We would like to know your Use-Case & what your Team is trying to achieve. Splitting Snapshot isn't feasible, yet there may be other choices to achieve the Use-Case your Team is achieve, if your Team can share the same.
