Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1281) flush the METADATA table after GC
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 22:09:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1281?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13633468#comment-13633468

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1281:
--------------------------------------

Do we want to do it after every run or every Nth?

Or perhaps this makes for the case that the !METADATA table should have a smaller in memory
map, but that sounds like a bad idea.

> The METADATA table is often small, with many in-memory writes.  Because it is small,
it does not normally get flushed, which will prune data with the versioning/delete iterators.
 Over time, the many in-memory versions can cause poor performance.
> The file garbage collector (gc) will make lots of updates as it runs.  That would be
a perfect time to flush the table and prune the versions.
