Configure the MOB cache using Cloudera Manager

To configure the MOB cache within Cloudera Manager, edit the HBase Service advanced configuration snippet for the cluster. Cloudera recommends testing your configuration with the default settings first.

  1. Go to the HBase service.
  2. Click Configuration.
  3. Search for the property HBase Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hbase-site.xml.
  4. Paste your configuration into the Value field and save your changes. The following example sets the hbase.mob.cache.evict.period property to 5000 seconds. See MOB Cache Properties for a list of configurable properties.
  5. Restart your cluster for the changes to take effect.
