HBase Installation (Standalone mode/local file system)

- Java 1.5.x, preferably from Sun.
- Hadoop 0.16.x. This version of HBase will only run on Hadoop 0.16.x..
- ssh must be installed and sshd must be running to use Hadoop's scripts
   to manage remote Hadoop daemons.
- HBase currently is a file handle hog. The usual default of 1024 on *nix systems
   is insufficient if you are loading any significant amount of data into regionservers.
  See the FAQ: Why do I see "java.io.IOException...(Too many open files)" in my logs?  for how to up the limit.

[C] Installation of HBase
(1) Java 1.5.x
    - installed java 1.6.x
    - Not sure whether 1.6.x will work
(2) Unzipped the Hadoop archive file (ver 1.3) at ~/hbase
(3) ssh & sshd configuration (execution)
    - sudo apt-get install openssh-server
    - sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start (stop)
(4) edit the limit number of file handlers
    - checked /etc/security/limits.conf but there is no option to edit for this

[C] HBase Configuration
(1) ${HBASE_HOME} : the real location of hbase (/home/luran/hbase)
(2) modify JAVA_HOME information on ${HBASE_HOME}/conf/hbase-env.sh
(3) start HBase by ${HBASE_HOME}/bin/start_hbase.sh
(4) stop HBase by ${HBASE_HOME}/bin/stop-hbase.sh
