Class RowDeletingIterator

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.accumulo.core.iterators.user.RowDeletingIterator
All Implemented Interfaces:
SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Direct Known Subclasses:
RowDeletingIterator

public class RowDeletingIterator
extends Object
implements SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>

An iterator for deleting whole rows. After setting this iterator up for your table, to delete a row insert a row with empty column family, empty column qualifier, empty column visibility, and a value of DEL_ROW. Do not use empty columns for anything else when using this iterator. When using this iterator the locality group containing the row deletes will always be read. The locality group containing the empty column family will contain row deletes. Always reading this locality group can have an impact on performance. For example assume there are two locality groups, one containing large images and one containing small metadata about the images. If row deletes are in the same locality group as the images, then this will significantly slow down scans and major compactions that are only reading the metadata locality group. Therefore, you would want to put the empty column family in the locality group that contains the metadata. Another option is to put the empty column in its own locality group. Which is best depends on your data.

Method Detail

deepCopy

public SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value> deepCopy(IteratorEnvironment env)
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Creates a deep copy of this iterator as though seek had not yet been called. init should be called on an iterator before deepCopy is called. init should not need to be called on the copy that is returned by deepCopy; that is, when necessary init should be called in the deepCopy method on the iterator it returns. The behavior is unspecified if init is called after deepCopy either on the original or the copy.

Specified by:
deepCopy in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Parameters:
env - IteratorEnvironment environment in which iterator is being run.
Returns:
SortedKeyValueIterator a copy of this iterator (with the same source and settings).

getTopKey

public Key getTopKey()
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Returns top key. Can be called 0 or more times without affecting behavior of next() or hasTop(). Note that in minor compaction scope and in non-full major compaction scopes the iterator may see deletion entries. These entries should be preserved by all iterators except ones that are strictly scan-time iterators that will never be configured for the minc or majc scopes. Deletion entries are only removed during full major compactions.

Specified by:
getTopKey in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Returns:
K

getTopValue

public Value getTopValue()
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Returns top value. Can be called 0 or more times without affecting behavior of next() or hasTop().

Specified by:
getTopValue in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Returns:
V

hasTop

public boolean hasTop()
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Returns true if the iterator has more elements.

Specified by:
hasTop in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Returns:
true if the iterator has more elements.

init

public void init(SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value> source,
                 Map<String,String> options,
                 IteratorEnvironment env)
          throws IOException
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Initializes the iterator. Data should not be read from the source in this method.

Specified by:
init in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Parameters:
source - SortedKeyValueIterator source to read data from.
options - Map map of string option names to option values.
env - IteratorEnvironment environment in which iterator is being run.
Throws:
IOException - unused.

next

public void next()
          throws IOException
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Advances to the next K,V pair. Note that in minor compaction scope and in non-full major compaction scopes the iterator may see deletion entries. These entries should be preserved by all iterators except ones that are strictly scan-time iterators that will never be configured for the minc or majc scopes. Deletion entries are only removed during full major compactions.

Specified by:
next in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.

seek

public void seek(Range range,
                 Collection<ByteSequence> columnFamilies,
                 boolean inclusive)
          throws IOException
Description copied from interface: SortedKeyValueIterator
Seeks to the first key in the Range, restricting the resulting K,V pairs to those with the specified columns. An iterator does not have to stop at the end of the range. The whole range is provided so that iterators can make optimizations.

Specified by:
seek in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,Value>
Parameters:
range - Range of keys to iterate over.
columnFamilies - Collection of column families to include or exclude.
inclusive - boolean that indicates whether to include (true) or exclude (false) column families.
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.
