Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3710) Scanning with many singleton ranges crashes tserver

             Summary: Scanning with many singleton ranges crashes tserver
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3710
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client, tserver
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
            Reporter: Dylan Hutchison

Setup: single-node standalone 1.6.1 Accumulo instance.
Use case: scan ~1M individual rows, scattered across a ~15GB table.  
The following steps crash the TabletServer:

1. Gather a List of Range objects, each one a singleton range spanning an entire row.
2. Create a BatchScanner with one read thread.
3. Set the ranges via BatchScanner.setRanges()
4. Start iterating through the scanner.

One solution is to batch the reads into groups of ~10k ranges idea.  

Comment from Josh Elser:
Taking a quick glance at the code, it looks like this would be a good place to do some optimization
in the BatchScanner's impl (TabletServerBatchReaderImpl). The BatchScanner will bin the ranges
to the tablets and the servers hosting those tablets. Normally, this would be spread out,
but, in your single server case, all 1M rows would all go to a single TabletServer in one
RPC call.

I'm guessing a good optimization here would be to check the size of a batch of Ranges for
a single tabletserver, and when above a certain threshold, split the batch in half and try
to reprocess each half (the recursion would naturally keep splitting until we get down to
some high-watermark).

Point being, if your client VM constructed the Ranges without issue, the BatchScanner impl
should be smart enough to not knock over a TabletServer.

Verified to cause an OOME via  tserver_localhost.out:
# java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
# -XX:OnOutOfMemoryError="kill -9 %p"
#   Executing /bin/sh -c "kill -9 12833"...
