Thank you for response.

If I use "create index" command to build a global index on an existing table,  what does Phoenix
do behind this command? How Phoenix build global index?

Give Hbase region servers lots of memory, set number of Hbase store files and blocking files
way high. Major compact before and after. You can create an index a sync with map reduce but
not rebuild AFAIK. Also if rebuilding one or more local index, I found it better to drop it
first in Hbase, preserving the splits.
