    All just moved out application over to hortonworks. In the hbase log we are seeing the following

    Hi Ben,

    Do you have speculative execution enabled?


    Ben Cuthbert

    Hi sasha what is that. All we did is upgrade to Horton works we use stumbleupon 1.3.2.

    Ben Cuthbert

    We ar not using mapReduce just writing into hbase. This did work when we ran on our old hbase

    Ben Cuthbert

    When we rollback to hbase 0.90.3 and hadoop everything works.

    Sasha J

    So, your saying that when you rolled back to the older version of hbase it’s working? In my digging in the internet it seems that it is linked to the issue you mention above. There were several other folks reporting the same issue to apache.

The forum ‘HBase’ is closed to new topics and replies.
