Interface BatchWriter

  • All Superinterfaces:
    AutoCloseable

    public interface BatchWriter
    extends AutoCloseable
    Send Mutations to a single Table in Accumulo.

    When the user uses a Connector to create a BatchWriter, they specify how much memory and how many threads it should use. As the user adds mutations to the batch writer, it buffers them. Once the buffered mutations have used half of the user specified buffer, the mutations are dumped into the background to be written by a thread pool. If the user specified memory completely fills up, then writes are held. When a user calls flush, it does not return until all buffered mutations are written.

    In the event that an MutationsRejectedException exception is thrown by one of the methods on a BatchWriter instance, the user should close the current instance and create a new instance. This is a known limitation which will be addressed by ACCUMULO-2990 in the future.
