Restrictions in Store File Tracking

Know the current restrictions and caveats while using the Store File Tracking feature.

The following are the current restrictions and caveats.

  • There is no automated opt-in to this feature for already existing databases. Deploy a new database using the above directions.
  • Previously existing COD databases which are upgraded to Cloudera Runtime 7.2.14 does not use the Store File Tracking feature. These databases continue to use HBOSS to safely interact with S3.
  • Restoring HBase snapshots (clone_snapshot and restore_snapshot) are observed as unstable at the 1TB scale. You can contact Cloudera for assistance on this topic.
