How can we check the count if a column family getting updated in hbase


Is there any possibility where we can check the count of vesions of a column family in hbase


Master Guru

Hbase a version is defined at a cell level.

A {row, column, version} tuple exactly specifies a cell in HBase. It's possible to have an unbounded number of cells where the row and column are the same but the cell address differs only in its version dimension.

What you are asking for is at CF, but if you think about how Hbase is designed then the entire concept of cell level versioning makes sense. Not for CF therefore the functionality does not exist AFAIK.
