Stop replication in an emergency

If replication is causing serious problems, you can stop it while the clusters are running.

Open the shell on the source cluster and use the disable_peer command for each peer, then the disable_table_replication command. For example:

hbase> disable_peer("1")
   hbase> disable_table_replication 'table_name'

Already queued edits will be replicated after you use the disable_table_replication command, but new entries will not.

To start replication again, use the enable_peer command.
