Re: HBase - Secondary Index
I would like to reply to this...As previously i was part of the impl of
this..Hope Anoop corrects me if i am going wrong here..
 However if the update to the index table (after a succesful update of the
source table) fails for some other reason (without a crash of the region
server), the HLog will not be replayed..

As you understood the WALEdit is done for the index region and also for the
main region using WAL hooks.  The next step includes the addition to the
So the KVs needs to be added to the memstore of both the main region and
index region. What type of failure do you foresee here?
You think of flushes or something that could fail?

If you see the Put() api code once the WAL edit is successfull there is no
need to rollback also. Just after the memstore addition happens for the
main table new hooks were added to make an entry for the index table.
 Ideally here both should pass. Also some addtional work was done inorder
to take into account the MVCC part.  So that a flush of the main region or
index region does not affect an incoming put or vice versa.

Anyway Anoop can answer to this more specifically as i dont have access to
the src code anymore.
