Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4316) Compaction Throttle too bursty with large rows
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 08:28:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13554841#comment-13554841
] 

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4316:
-------------------------------------------

Hmm... taking a step back for a minute.  Since the minimum unit of throttling is still a row,
do we win anything with the extra complexity of pushing it down into SSTableScanner?  Why
not just leave it in CompactionIterable loop, w/ adaptive checking based on row size as above?

> In org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.CompactionIterable the check for compaction throttling
occurs once every 1000 rows. In our workload this is much too large as we have many large
rows (16 - 100 MB).
> With a 100 MB row, about 100 GB is read (and possibly written) before the compaction
throttle sleeps. This causes bursts of essentially unthrottled compaction IO followed by a
long sleep which yields inconsistence performance and high error rates during the bursts.
> We applied a workaround to check throttle every row which solved our performance and
error issues:
> line 116 in org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.CompactionIterable:
>                 if ((row++ % 1000) == 0)
> replaced with
>                 if ((row++ % 1) == 0)
> I think the better solution is to calculate how often throttle should be checked based
on the throttle rate to apply sleeps more consistently. E.g. if 16MB/sec is the limit then
check for sleep after every 16MB is read so sleeps are spaced out about every second.
