       HBase - The Hadoop Database.

SYNOPSIS

       Usage: hbase [--config confdir] COMMAND

DESCRIPTION

       HBase  is  the  Hadoop  database.  It  hosts  very  large tables (think
       petabytes) -- billions of rows X millions of columns --  atop  clusters
       of commodity hardware. It's modeled after Google's Bigtable.

OPTIONS

       --config configdir

              Overrides   the  "HADOOP_CONF_DIR"  environment  variable.   See
              "ENVIĆ¢RONMENT" section below.

              This  symbolic  link  points  to  the  currently  active   HBase
              configuration directory.

       Note to System Admins

       The "/etc/hbase/conf" link is managed by the alternatives(8) command so
       you should not change this symlink directly.
