Subject [GitHub] [accumulo] keith-turner opened a new pull request #1389: Always choose volume for new tablet files.
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2019 18:18:22 GMT
keith-turner opened a new pull request #1389: Always choose volume for new tablet files.
   This commit changes Accumulo to always call the volume chooser every time a
   tablet creates a new file.  It also changes the interpretation of the srv:dir
   column in the metadata table.  This column used to contain a URI to a
   directory on a specific volume that was used for all new tablet files. Now the
   srv:dir column only contains a directory name.  This directory name will be
   used for new tablet files across all volumes.
   This change necessitated to ~del markers in the metadata table used for
   garbage collection.  When a table is cloned or tablets are merged out of
   existance it can result in ~del markers for tablet dirs being placed in
   the metadata table.  These ~del markers used to reference a specific volume.
   With this change, the ~del marker now use a special URI  of the form
     accumulo://allVolumes/accumulo/tables/<tableId>/<dir name>
   When the Accumulo GC sees this, it will delete the dir on all configured
   volumes when its no longer used.
   This change superceded #642.  These changes are possible because of the
   changes made in #936.
   This change in not complete.  There are still some rough edges in GC that need to be smoothed
   Also, upgrade code needs to be written.  Wanted to put this up for feedback before proceeding.
