Varun Saxena commented on YARN-4053:
------------------------------------

Tez may not be publishing any floating point metric as of now. I am not too 
sure about what all they publish. So probably there is no use case as of now. 
But if we do not support floating point numbers, then we should clearly 
document that we will only support integral values. And do the conversion in 
writer if any floating point value comes.

> 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.
