An HBase REPL

This is the beginnings of a tiny utility library for working with HBase in the REPL.

Author: Kyle Oba ;; mudphone ;; koba mudphone.com

QUICK START:

  1. clone the repo
  2. execute this command from the repo root: $ ./hbase-repl.sh
  3. connect with this command: user=> (start-hbase-repl)
  4. do stuff, like list all tables: user=> (list-all-tables)
  5. see below for comprehensive set-up instructions...
  6. explore!

PROJECT GOALS:

  • Make this a comprehensive replacement for the HBase Shell.
  • Allow non-lisp programmers to use this tool with ease.
  • Allow ease of exploration of HBase data values and location.

What's new:

  • Now using HBase 0.20.2 for active development.

    • NOTE: You can use this with 0.20.0-1, you just have to replace the hbase and zk jars in lib/java with the proper versions. It's that simple AFAIK. YMMV.
  • Connections to HBase are now configured via the config/connections.clj file. This is basically a Clojure map with connection settings. This means that hbase-site.xml is no longer required for hbase-runner to find your master.

Some notes:

  • The HBase jars must be on your classpath (including Zookeeper). They are currently included in lib/java and are put on the REPL classpath (if you use the included hbase-repl.sh script). If you do not use the hbase-repl.sh script, you have to add these jars to your classpath manually (or however you normally do it).

  • For rlwrap goodness at the REPL (including tab-completion):

    1. make sure you have rlwrap installed (you can get it from macports if you're a mac drone).
    2. Also, set up your ~/.inputrc file (a sample is in config/.inputrc).
    3. Then, create a ~/.clj_completions file (you can run utils/completions.clj to create one). Run this: $> hbase-repl.sh utils/completions.clj
    4. If that doesn't work for you, you can copy the .clj_completions.sample file to ~/.clj_completions
  • Truncating tables in a pmap is great because it's fast. However, since the truncate calls are executed in agents, the output of the command is not seen. The truncate-tables command set up to return a list of maps, which are keyed with either :truncated or :error. There is one map per truncated table. This return structure allows you to see if everything ran as expected.

  • There's a test suite. But, it's not comprehensive yet. To run it, do this:

    1. Running tests from the command-line: $> ./run_tests.sh This is probably the best way to run all the tests at once.

    2. Running tests from the Emacs REPL: If you have swank-clojure-project working, you can:

      • start a new swank clojure project: M-x swank-clojure-project
      • pass it the root dir of the hbase-runner project
      • start the hbase-runner REPL (connect to the test DB): user> (use 'hbase-runner.hbase-repl) user> (start-hbase-repl :test "hbr_spec")
      • open the spec file you want to run
      • run tests in the opened buffer C-c C-,
      • errors will be hilighted in red, for details, move the point and press C-c C-'

KNOWN BUGS:

  • At times, the truncate-tables function will not properly recreate a table. Be sure to save the result of your truncate-table(s) calls, like so: $> (def result (truncate-tables list-o-tables)) "result" will now contain a helpful map of the tables and their statuses. If there was error, you can enable/disable, or use the included HTable descriptor to re-create the table.

    Use (:errors result) on the result of truncate-tables to find tables with errors.

    NOTE: This seems to be less of a problem with HBase 0.20.2.

Instructions for use:

Setup

If you are planning to run hbase-runner from Emacs you must set up the HBASE_RUNNER_HOME environment variable. Set this to where you cloned this project. $> export HBASE_RUNNER_HOME= $> cd $HBASE_RUNNER_HOME

Configure your HBase connection by copying config/connections.template.clj to config/connections.clj and edit this file to reflect your HBase set-up. $> cd config $> cp connections.template.clj connections.clj $> emacs connections.clj

Running the HBase-Runner REPL

Via Script

To get a REPL, you can use the hbase-repl.sh script:

Run the included repl script: $> ./hbase-repl.sh

Note: Since hbase-repl.sh uses rlwrap, if you have it installed, you will get Clojure and HBase-Runner tab-completion! For example: > (truncate-t ;;=> (truncate-table See rlwrap note above to set up your list of completions.

Users of the hbase-repl.sh script, do not have to explicity "use" the library because it is automatically loaded by the script.

Via Emacs

However you get Slime / Swank working with Clojure:

If you're using Emacs, and you're working with Slime, you can include the library like this: user=> (use 'hbase-runner.hbase-repl)

Using swank-clojure-project

Do a: M-x swank-clojure-project Then, select the cloned root directory. You should then be able to: user=> (use 'hbase-repl.hbase-runner) user=> (start-hbase-repl)

That is, provided you have your config/connections.clj in order.

In General

While in the REPL...

Create a connection to HBase...

If you want to work with all tables: user=> (start-hbase-repl)

If you would rather provide a table namespace (prefix) user=> (start-hbase-repl "koba_development") ;; the following would force most commands to only work with tables ;; beginning with "koba_development_"

List tables...

This prints all HBase tables: user=> (list-all-tables)

This prints all HBase tables in your "namespace". user=> (list-tables)

Show HBase-Runner settings...

Print system settings, such as table-ns, selected system, and HBASE_RUNNER_HOME: user=> (print-current-settings)

Truncate Tables...

To truncate tables in parallel: user=> (def result (truncate-tables list-o-tables)) ;; where "list-o-talbes" is a list of tables that you've def-ed somewhere.

If, you are in the hbase-repl namespace, you can use pretty print: user=> (pp) ;; to see the last result or user=> (pprint result)

I hope to make it easier to find out why things go wrong while pmap-ing the table truncations. For now, you can do this: user=> (def result (truncate-tables list-o-tables)) user=> (:errors result) ;; => to see tables with errors user=> (:truncated result) ;; => to see tables which were truncated

Truncated tables are keyed with :trunacted. If there was an error on truncation, they will be keyed with :error. You will want to check the console output if there were errors. Also, try enable/disable on the tables, as this is frequently a problem.

The result from a truncate-table(s) call contains the original HTable descriptor. To retrieve a table which has been dropped in error, you can use this descriptor with the create-table-from function.

To re-create the first table with an error (assuming it was dropped): user=> (def result (truncate-tables list-o-tables)) ;; This is where things went wrong. ... output with errors ... user=> (create-table-from (:descriptor (first (:errors result))))

If that makes your brain hurt, you can use "truncate-tables!" to do all this in a loop.

Scan tables...

To scan tables you have two options. Option #1 is to print the results to screen, but not return them. This will ensure that, if your result set is large, you do not blow the heap: user=> (scan "table-name")

Option #2 is to return the results of the scan as a list of result maps. Note the ! at the end of "scan!": user=> (scan! "table-name")

You can also pass options to either of these scan functions. For example ; Scan for all versions of cells (defaults to 1): user=> (scan "table-name" {:versions :all})

  ; Limit scan results to a number of records (defaults to all):
  user=> (scan "table-name" {:limit 10})

  ; Only scan certain column families, column qualifiers:
  user=> (scan "table-name" {:columns "f1"})
  user=> (scan "table-name" {:columns "f1:q1})
  user=> (scan "table-name" {:columns ["f1" "f2"]})

The current public API includes:

count-rows [table-name]
count-tables [table-names]
create-missing-results-tables
create-table-from [descriptor]
current-table-ns []
describe [table-name]
disable-all-tables []

Enjoy!

TODO (in rough order of precedence):

  • Make this a comprehensive replacement for the HBase shell.
  • Default scan should show all family:qualifier combinations (not just all families)
  • Scan should not need to pass list of columns around everywhere.
  • Implement:
    • regions-for-table
    • close all regions for a table (if this is a good idea)
  • Complete test coverage of full public API.
  • Remove hard-coded (ooops) output / input file paths for table dump files.

Thanks go to:

  • Amit Rathore (#amitrathore) - Much code was taken from his clojure utils.
  • Clojure Contrib Authors - I borrowed and stole much.

For keeping our HBase up and getting us up to the required number of nodes:
