Re: Extending HBase Metrics Framework
1) Metrics infos have been collected from HMaster\RS, and covering rpc,
jvm, hbase functional module (like compaction\flush\request Count\DataBlock
read &&write etc).

2) You can set metrics info handler in conf/hadoop-metrics.properties
for example, you can set hbase.class org.apache.hadoop.metrics.ganglia.GangliaContext31, it will tell Metrics
System where the metrics will be sent to. Of course, this is Ganglia.
if set
it will write the metrics to file.

# hbase.class=org.apache.hadoop.metrics.ganglia.GangliaContext
# hbase.class=org.apache.hadoop.metrics.ganglia.GangliaContext31
# hbase.period=10
# hbase.servers=
