Subject Should in-memory components from different dataset share the entire memory?
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 22:46:41 GMT
Dear Devs,

I have some questions about the memory management of the in-memory components for different

The current AsterixDB backing the cloudberry demo is down every few days. It always throws
an exception like following: 
Caused by: org.apache.hyracks.api.exceptions.HyracksDataException: Failed to open index with
resource ID 7 since it does not exist.

As described in ASTERIXDB-1337, each dataset has a fixed budget no matter how small/big it
is. Then the number of datasets can be loaded at the same time is also fixed by $number =
storage.memorycomponent.globalbudget/storage.memorycomponent.numpages. My question is if we
have more than $number of datasets, then the eviction will happen? Will it evict a entire
dataset of the victim? Base on the symptom of above exception, it seems the metadata get evicted?
Could we protect the metadata from eviction? 

A more fundament question Is it possible that all those datasets share a global budget in
a multi-tenant way? 
In my workload there are one main dataset( ~10Gb) and five tiny auxiliary datasets (each size
<20M). In addition, the client will create a bunch of temporary datasets depends on how
many concurrent users are and each temp-dataset will be “refreshed" for a new query. (The
refresh is done by drop and create the temp-dataset). It’s hard to find one storage.memorycomponent.numpages
that make every dataset happy.
