Replication across three or more clusters

When configuring replication among three or more clusters, Cloudera recommends to enable KEEP_DELETED_CELLS on column families in the destination cluster, where REPLICATION_SCOPE=1 in the source cluster.

The following commands show how to enable this configuration using HBase Shell.
  • On the source cluster:
    create 't1',{NAME=>'f1', REPLICATION_SCOPE=>1}
  • On the destination cluster:
    create 't1',{NAME=>'f1', KEEP_DELETED_CELLS=>'true'}
