HBase needs HDFS syncs to avoid dataloss during component failure.

What's the output of the command "bin/hbase version"?


What's the result of doing the following in the hbase install?

ls -lah lib/hadoop*

yes correct I am using Hbase on hdfs  with hadoop-2.7.3

The file system is ext4.

I was hoping that I can avoid the sync option,

many thanks
