Class LocalityGroupIterator

    • Method Detail

      • 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. Seek may be called multiple times with different parameters after SortedKeyValueIterator.init(org.apache.accumulo.core.iterators.SortedKeyValueIterator<K, V>, java.util.Map<java.lang.String, java.lang.String>, org.apache.accumulo.core.iterators.IteratorEnvironment) is called. Iterators that examine groups of adjacent key/value pairs (e.g. rows) to determine their top key and value should be sure that they properly handle a seek to a key in the middle of such a group (e.g. the middle of a row). Even if the client always seeks to a range containing an entire group (a,c), the tablet server could send back a batch of entries corresponding to (a,b], then reseek the iterator to range (b,c) when the scan is continued. columnFamilies is used, at the lowest level, to determine which data blocks inside of an RFile need to be opened for this iterator. This set of data blocks is also the set of locality groups defined for the given table. If no columnFamilies are provided, the data blocks for all locality groups inside of the correct RFile will be opened and seeked in an attempt to find the correct start key, regardless of the startKey in the range. In an Accumulo instance in which multiple locality groups exist for a table, it is important to ensure that columnFamilies is properly set to the minimum required column families to ensure that data from separate locality groups is not inadvertently read.
        Specified by:
        seek in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,​Value>
        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.
        IOException - if an I/O error occurs.
      • 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. A proper implementation would call deepCopy on the source.
        Specified by:
        deepCopy in interface SortedKeyValueIterator<Key,​Value>
        env - IteratorEnvironment environment in which iterator is being run.
        SortedKeyValueIterator a copy of this iterator (with the same source and settings).
