One more to add to your list of clients is Phoenix:
It's a "SQL skin", built on top of the standard Java client with various optimizations; it exposes HBase via a standard JDBC interface, and thus might let you easily plug into other tools for testing performance.

Subject: Re: HBase Client.
Most of the clients listed below are language specific, so if your
benchmarking scripts are written in JAVA, you are better off running the
HBase Shell is more for running something interactive, not sure how you
plan to benchmark that.
REST is something that you could use, but I can't comment on it's
performance since I have
HappyBase is for python.
Kundera, can't comment since I have not used it.
You can look at AsyncHBase, if you don't mind wrapping your head around it.
But it's a bigger rewrite since the API is not compatible with existing

I would like to benchmark HBase using some of our distributed
applications using custom developed benchmarking scripts/programs.
I found the following clients are available. Could you please let me
know which of the following provides best performance.
1. Java direct interface to HBASE.
2. HBase Shell
3. via Rest
Please let me know if there is any other client which provides better
