flume with hbase


I have flume putting data into hbase. the data is like data for 4 columns.

So can i create the table in hbase like below :

create "table1", "col1", "col2", "col3", "col4"

In the flume configuration, is this the way to set values for these three parameters :

rsa_hbase.sinks.sink1.table = table1

rsa_hbase.sinks.sink1.columnFamily = col1,col2,col3,col4

rsa_hbase.sinks.sink1.column = col1,col2,col3,col4

rsa_hbase.sinks.sink1.serializer.columns = col1,col2,col3,col4

I am basically doing this as a solution for the small files issue - trying to use hbase for it.

I will eventually be mapping the hbase table to a hive table.

Appreciate the insights.
