Enable cluster-wide HBase replication

The Lily HBase Indexer is implemented using HBase replication, presenting indexers as RegionServers of the worker cluster. This requires HBase replication on the HBase cluster, as well as the individual tables to be indexed.

To enable replication:

  1. Go to HBase service > Configuration > Category > Backup
  2. Select the Enable Replication checkbox.
  3. Set Replication Source Ratio to 1.
  4. Set Replication Batch Size to 1000.
  5. Click Save Changes.
  6. Restart the HBase service (HBase service > Actions > Restart).
