Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4310) Multiple independent Level Compactions in Parallel
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 16:03:08 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4310:

bq. there are no more idle executor threads 

Worth elaborating that we have slightly conflicting goals here:

# we want to keep all {{concurrent_compactor}} threads busy
# but, we don't want to enqueue tasks farther in advance than we need to, since more information
can become available due to other flushes or compactions finishing in the meantime, that allows
us to create a more optimal task

So I think what we want is to track "currently being compacted CFs" in CompactionManager.
 If a CF is currently being compacted, and there are no idle threads, submitBackground can
be a no-op; we can wait for the current compaction to finish and re-submit when more information
is available.  Otherwise, we should submit at least one task to prevent starvation by busier
CFs, and more if there are idle threads still.

> Problem: If you are inserting data into cassandra and level compaction cannot catchup,
you will create lot of files in L0.  
> Here is a solution which will help here and also increase the performance of level compaction.
> We can do many compactions in parallel for unrelated data.
> 1) For no over lapping levels. Ex: when L0 stable is compacting with L1, we can do compactions
in other levels like L2 and L3 if they are eligible.
> 2) We can also do compactions with files in L1 which are not participating in L0 compactions.
> This is specially useful if you are using SSD and is not bottlenecked by IO. 
> I am seeing this issue in my cluster. The compactions pending are more than 50k and the
disk usage is not that much(I am using SSD).
> I am doing multithreaded to true and also not throttling the IO by putting the value
as 0.
