Currently, the replication RPCs for log shipping have been converted to Protobufs. In
HBASE-5944, Stack mentioned that the znodes for replication still needed to be converted, but I don't see a patch for it.
Some examples of the znode values:
- The value of the replication status znode (TRUE or FALSE)
- The cluster key for a peer cluster, containing the zk quorum, zk port and hbase base znode (zk1.host.com,zk2.host.com,zk3.host.com:2181:/hbase)
- The peer state znode (ENABLED or DISABLED)
- The HLog position (a long containing the position in the hlog)
All of the replication values are relatively simple. Do we think it is worth converting them to protobufs?
