HI, we work on cdh5.3.2-0.98.5 hbase, there is a hbase table has 3TB size. hbase> disable ‘tableName’ hbase> snapshot ‘tableName’, ‘tableSnapshot’ hbase> clone_snapshot ‘tableSnapshot’, ‘newNameSpace:newTableName’ hbase> delete_snapshot ‘tableSnapshot’ hbase> drop ‘tableName‘ We would like to rename use above shell script to change namespace, Is it will take more time to create archive file? is renamed table impact of performance than the original table? etc, scan from PIG job,the behaviour when changing old data. In other words, what is the differnt between the ‘newNameSpace:newTableName’ table and ‘tableName’? Thanks
Thanks for your reply, What is the behaviour of archive HFile when update the old data? is it the archive HFile will be changed or move to data namespace folder again when the region was compacted or splited?
