Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5074) Add an official way to disable compaction
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2013 09:59:20 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-5074:

The general idea lgtm. A few remarks though:
* There is no handling of CQL3 (which is in the package org.apache.cassandra.cql3). I'll not
that for CQL3, this setting should probably be a 'compaction' option, not at top-level one.
Thruth being told, maybe it would be cleaner to have that be a compaction option in the code
too (handled by AbstractCompactionStrategy)?
* Currently, whether compaction is disabled or not is checked by the compaction strategy themselves.
In particular, SizeTiered directly check the min and max thresholds (rather than calling isCompactionDisabled)
in getNextBackgroundSSTables, so that needs to be fixed. Furthermore, those checks are redundant
with the newly added checks in CompactionManager. And since there's the new 'isActive' flag
that also mean "don't create a compaction task", maybe it would be simpler to create an AbstractCompactionStrategy.isEnabled()
method that would return 'isActive && !isAutoCompactionDisabled()' and use that exclusively.
* We should probably now refuse setting the min/max thresholds to 0 everywhere (and add a
mention in the NEWS file).
* In nodeCmd, the convention for methods that take a keyspace and column family argument is
that if they are not given, the method applies to all keyspace/CF. Could be handy here too.
* Nit: For the enableAutoCompaction with an argument, we can add a @VisibleForTesting annotation.

> We've traditionally used "min or max compaction threshold = 0" to disable compaction,
but this isn't exactly intuitive and it's inconsistently implemented -- allowed from jmx,
not allowed from cli.
