Re: Pre splitting the HBase Table for specific row key design

Hi Hari,

Can you please provide more details on the the challenge that you are

You can pre-split using the Java Client Api, the HBase shell or even with
the WebUI.

For the shell, you can do something like this: create 'transactions', 'f1',
{NUMREGIONS => 15, SPLITALGO => 'HexStringSplit'}
