Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8789) OutboundTcpConnectionPool should route messages to sockets by size not type
Date Sat, 25 Apr 2015 15:05:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-8789?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14512525#comment-14512525

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-8789:
-------------------------------------

I'm confused by that output and your analysis, so if you could clarify it would be appreciated.
The message on node1 doesn't indicate anything about the TCP connection, only that we have
3 gossip messages on the node that have yet to be processed, meaning the gossip _stage_ (thread
pool) is backed up for some reason. Possibly due to the node being overloaded.

The second messages on the other hand seem to indicate the node1 really is suffering difficulty,
though? Because it cannot reconnect its connection to it, after it was forcibly closed by
the gossiper (though it is possible we have some other problems wrt reconnection that I'm
not aware of).

> I was looking at this trying to understand what messages flow over which connection.
> For reads the request goes out over the command connection and the response comes back
over the ack connection.
> For writes the request goes out over the command connection and the response comes back
over the command connection.
> Reads get a dedicated socket for responses. Mutation commands and responses both travel
over the same socket along with read requests.
> Sockets are used uni-directional so there are actually four sockets in play and four
threads at each node (2 inbounded, 2 outbound).
> CASSANDRA-488 doesn't leave a record of what the impact of this change was. If someone
remembers what situations were made better it would be good to know.
> I am not clear on when/how this is helpful. The consumer side shouldn't be blocking so
the only head of line blocking issue is the time it takes to transfer data over the wire.
> If message size is the cause of blocking issues then the current design mixes small messages
and large messages on the same connection retaining the head of line blocking.
> Read requests share the same connection as write requests (which are large), and write
acknowledgments (which are small) share the same connections as write requests. The only winner
is read acknowledgements.
