We are running some high load jobs which are mostly writes. During
these jobs, compaction is triggered which takes sometime as longs as
40mins to complete. This causes blocking (as others wait for compaction
in the queue). Please suggest how much compaction time is reasonable for
compacting 2Gb store files . And best way to avoid long blocking
Using Cloudera hbase vesion 3u3.
