Scans a given table + CF for all mob reference cells to get the list of backing mob files. For
each referenced file we attempt to verify that said file is on the FileSystem in a place that the
MOB system will look when attempting to resolve the actual value.
The job includes counters that can help provide a rough sketch of the mob data.

- Map-Reduce Framework:Map input records - the number of rows with mob references
- Map-Reduce Framework:Reduce output records - the number of unique hfiles referenced
- MOB:NUM_CELLS - the total number of mob reference cells
- PROBLEM:Affected rows - the number of rows that reference hfiles with an issue
- PROBLEM:Problem MOB files - the number of unique hfiles that have an issue
- CELLS PER ROW: - this counter group gives a histogram of the order of magnitude of the number
of cells in a given row by grouping by the number of digits used in each count. This allows us to
see more about the distribution of cells than what we can determine with just the cell count and
the row count. In this particular example we can see that all of our rows have somewhere between
1 - 9 cells.
- ROWS WITH PROBLEMS PER FILE: - this counter group gives a histogram of the order of magnitude
of the number of rows in each of the hfiles with a problem. e.g. in the example there are 2
hfiles and they each have the same order of magnitude number of rows, specifically between 100
- SIZES OF CELLS: - this counter group gives a histogram of the order of magnitude of the size
of mob values according to our reference cells. e.g. in the example above we have cell sizes that
are all between 10,000 bytes and 9,999,999 bytes. From this histogram we can also see that _most_
cells are 100,000 - 999,000 bytes and the smaller and bigger ones are outliers making up less
than 2% of mob cells.
- SIZES OF ROWS: - this counter group gives a histogram of the order of magnitude of the size
of mob values across each row according to our reference cells. In the example above we have rows
that are are between 100,000 bytes and 9,999,999 bytes. We can also see that about 2/3rd of our
rows are 100,000 - 999,999 bytes.
Generates a report that gives one file status per line, with tabs dividing fields.

Possible results are listed; the first three indicate things are working properly.
- MOB DIR - the reference is in the normal MOB area for the given table and CF
- HLINK TO ARCHIVE FOR SAME TABLE - the reference is present in the archive area for this table
- HLINK TO ARCHIVE FOR OTHER TABLE - the reference is present in a different table and CF,
either in the MOB or archive areas (e.g. from a snapshot restore or clone)
- ARCHIVE WITH HLINK BUT NOT FROM OUR TABLE - the reference is currently present in the archive
area for this table and CF, but it is kept there because a _different_ table has a reference to
it (e.g. from a snapshot clone). If these other tables are removed then the file will likely be
deleted unless there is a snapshot also referencing it.
- ARCHIVE BUT NO HLINKS - the reference is currently present in the archive for this table and
CF, but there are no references present to prevent its removal. Unless it is newer than the
general TTL (default 5 minutes) or referenced in a snapshot it will be subject to cleaning.
- ARCHIVE BUT FAILURE WHILE CHECKING HLINKS - Check the job logs to see why things failed while
looking for why this file is being kept around.
- MISSING FILE - We couldn't find the reference on the FileSystem. Either there is dataloss due
to a bug in the MOB storage system or the MOB storage is damaged but in an edge case that allows
it to work for now. You can verify which by doing a raw reference scan to get the referenced
hfile and check the underlying filesystem. See the ref guide section on mob for details.
- HLINK BUT POINT TO MISSING FILE - There is a pointer in our mob area for this table and CF to
a file elsewhere on the FileSystem, however the file it points to no longer exists.
- MISSING FILE BUT FAILURE WHILE CHECKING HLINKS - We could not find the referenced file,
however you should check the job logs to see why we couldn't check to see if there is a pointer
to the referenced file in our archive or another table's archive or mob area.
