Installation Modes for HBase associated with Timeline Service 2.0
The HBase component available with Timeline Service 2.0 is automatically installed either in embedded mode or as a separate system service depending on the cluster capacity.
- Embedded mode: This mode of installation works on smaller clusters with less than 50 GB of total cluster capacity and less than 12 GB capacity of the NodeManager. This HBase cluster runs along with the Timeline Service V2.0 Reader component.
- System service mode: This mode of installation works on clusters where
the capacity on each node is at least 10 GB and the total cluster capacity is at
least 50 GB. In this mode, HBase runs as a separate service named
ats-hbaseon YARN. The system service mode is recommended for installation on large clusters for the purpose of scalability.
