Hi Tim,

It sounds like you're doing the right steps to build an index with the 
async approach. Not having records after IndexTool runs successfully is 
definitely unexpected :)

If you aren't getting any records in the index table after running the 
IndexTool, my guess is that something is going awry there. Have you 
looked at the logging produced by that MapReduce job? (e.g. `yarn logs 
-applicationId <foo>`).

It's curious that the job runs successfully and sets the index state to 
active, but you don't have any data loaded.

As a sanity check, does `select * from meta_reads limit 10` return you 
expected data?

For the future, always a good idea to let us know what version of 
Hadoop/HBase/Phoenix you're running when asking questions.

PS: If you're worried about the SocketTimeException, it's probably more 
to do with the size of your data table and the way a `select count(*)` 
runs. This is a full-table scan, and you'd have to increase 
hbase.rpc.timeout at at minimum to a larger value. If this is a normal 
query pattern you intend to service, it will be an exercise in tweaking
