Vrushali C commented on YARN-4053:
----------------------------------

I think metric values should be stored (and read back) as Longs.

What kind of metrics do you have in mind that will have floating point numbers? 
Any percentages that we want to store? I don't think we really need that level 
of precision.

> Change the way metric values are stored in HBase Storage

> Currently HBase implementation uses GenericObjectMapper to convert and store 
> values in backend HBase storage. This converts everything into a string 
> representation(ASCII/UTF-8 encoded byte array).
> While this is fine in most cases, it does not quite serve our use case for 
> metrics. 
> So we need to decide how are we going to encode and decode metric values and 
> store them in HBase.
