Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3918) Different locality groups can compact with different iterator stacks
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:54:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3918?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14601629#comment-14601629

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-3918:
--------------------------------------

We know that ZK has a defined window for propagation, sure. There would still be a question
of "what iterators and settings were used", but now the question would be per rfile, not per-locality
group. And being able to track these questions by file vs. locality group would be more scalable.

Furthermore, I don't understand the gain from having fresh iterators per locality group.

> While looking through the compactor code, I noticed that we load the iterator stack for
each locality group written and drop it when we're done. This means if a user reconfigures
iterators while a locality group is being written, the following locality groups will be compacted
inconsistently with the rest of the file.
> We should really read the stack once and be consistent for the entire file written.
