Client Properties

Below are properties set in accumulo-client.properties that configure Accumulo clients. All properties have been part of the API since 2.0.0 (unless otherwise specified):

Property Default value Since Description
instance.name empty 2.0.0 Name of Accumulo instance to connect to
instance.zookeepers localhost:2181 2.0.0 Zookeeper connection information for Accumulo instance
instance.zookeepers.timeout 30s 2.0.0 Zookeeper session timeout
auth.type password 2.0.0 Authentication method (i.e password, kerberos, PasswordToken, KerberosToken, etc)
auth.principal empty 2.0.0 Accumulo principal/username for chosen authentication method
auth.token empty 2.0.0 Authentication token (ex. mypassword, /path/to/keytab)
batch.writer.durability default 2.0.0 The durability used to write to the write-ahead log. Legal values are: none, which skips the write-ahead log; log, which sends the data to the write-ahead log, but does nothing to make it durable; flush, which pushes data to the file system; and sync, which ensures the data is written to disk. Setting this property will change the durability for the BatchWriter session. A value of “default” will use the table’s durability setting.
batch.writer.latency.max 120s 2.0.0 Max amount of time (in seconds) to hold data in memory before flushing it
batch.writer.memory.max 50M 2.0.0 Max memory (in bytes) to batch before writing
batch.writer.threads.max 3 2.0.0 Maximum number of threads to use for writing data to tablet servers.
batch.writer.timeout.max 0 2.0.0 Max amount of time (in seconds) an unresponsive server will be re-tried. An exception is thrown when this timeout is exceeded. Set to zero for no timeout.
