Will client wait during the compaction in hbase?

Compaction is the common process in the hbase my doubt is

Will the client request wait until the compaction process complete or anything else?

no it will not. during compaction, temporary files are created which will be compacted. later when it's done the smaller files are removed and huge compacted files will come it it's place. So at no time client requests are blocked. response time might increase because of cpu overhead of compaction process.
