Zheng Hu commented on HBASE-22810:

Thanks [~stack] for the fix.  Read the UT code,  it's indeed  a test which easy 
to be flaky.  For example, all snapshot request are submitted but the snapshot 
is a bit slow,  none are completed  when the assert begin: 
+    assertTrue("We expect at least 1 request to be rejected because of we 
concurrently" +
+        " issued many requests", takenSize < ssNum && takenSize > 0);
Then, the assert will be failure.  so +1 for me to remove it (I guess after 
increasing the 'hbase.master.executor.snapshot.threads',   it's easy to happen 

[~an...@apache.org], Thanks for the reminding .  It's true, there are two 
different config keys for the snapshot threads size,  but I think they have 
different meanings:
1.  hbase.master.executor.snapshot.threads :   means how many snapshot requests 
from client we can handle at master side the same time; 
2. hbase.snapshot.master.threads:   how many snapshot procedure we can 
coordinator with region server. 
The config key#1 limit the all the snapshot request, while the key#2 only limit 
the snapshot procedure with RS ( it's a part of the snapshot request).    Maybe 
we can uniform the two config keys into one ?  although we will initialize two 
different thread pools with the same thread size for different purpose.

> That's to say,  for CPs  enable or disable table sequencely,  we will create 
> a ThreadPoolExecutor with threadPoolSize=1.   Then we actually cann't 
> accomplish the snapshoting  concurrence even if they are total difference 
> tables, says if there are two table snapshoting request, and the Table A cost 
>  5min for snapshoting, then the Table B need to wait 5min and once Table A 
> finish its snapshot , then Table B will start the snapshot.
> While we've setting the snapshot timeout, so it will be easy to timeout for 
> table B snapshoting .   Actually,  we can create a separate thead pool for 
> snapshot operations only.
