Store File Tracking (SFT) defines a separate, plugable layer to handle storefile life cycle, and includes the FILE based built-in implementation that avoids internal file rename or move operations while managing the storefiles. This is a critical enablement to deploy HBase over S3 object store, which is known for the lack of atomic renames. COD enables this feature by defaultfor databases deployed on AWS with S3, to mitigate the aforementioned S3 limitation that could cause critical issues for HBase. For more information, see HBase Store File Tracking.
This is available starting in COD v1.22 and you do not need to upgrade to a higher version of COD to benefit from this feature.
