Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10993) Make read and write requests paths fully non-blocking, eliminate related stages
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:33:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10993?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15316423#comment-15316423

Joshua McKenzie commented on CASSANDRA-10993:
---------------------------------------------

Just skimming, and with total acknowledgement that it's a PoC and super rough, but [this|https://github.com/thobbs/cassandra/blob/CASSANDRA-10993-WIP/src/java/org/apache/cassandra/poc/WriteTask.java#L264]
caught my eye.

I'd expect that to return true if success, else false.

> Building on work done by [~tjake] (CASSANDRA-10528), [~slebresne] (CASSANDRA-5239), and
others, convert read and write request paths to be fully non-blocking, to enable the eventual
transition from SEDA to TPC (CASSANDRA-10989)
> Eliminate {{MUTATION}}, {{COUNTER_MUTATION}}, {{VIEW_MUTATION}}, {{READ}}, and {{READ_REPAIR}}
stages, move read and write execution directly to Netty context.
> For lack of decent async I/O options on Linux, we’ll still have to retain an extra
thread pool for serving read requests for data not residing in our page cache (CASSANDRA-5863),
however.
> Implementation-wise, we only have two options available to us: explicit FSMs and chained
futures. Fibers would be the third, and easiest option, but aren’t feasible in Java without
resorting to direct bytecode manipulation (ourselves or using [quasar|https://github.com/puniverse/quasar]).
> I have seen 4 implementations bases on chained futures/promises now - three in Java and
one in C++ - and I’m not convinced that it’s the optimal (or sane) choice for representing
our complex logic - think 2i quorum read requests with timeouts at all levels, read repair
(blocking and non-blocking), and speculative retries in the mix, {{SERIAL}} reads and writes.
> I’m currently leaning towards an implementation based on explicit FSMs, and intend
to provide a prototype - soonish - for comparison with {{CompletableFuture}}-like variants.
> Either way the transition is a relatively boring straightforward refactoring.
> There are, however, some extension points on both write and read paths that we do not
control:
> - authorisation implementations will have to be non-blocking. We have control over built-in
ones, but for any custom implementation we will have to execute them in a separate thread
pool
> - 2i hooks on the write path will need to be non-blocking
> - any trigger implementations will not be allowed to block
> - UDFs and UDAs
> We are further limited by API compatibility restrictions in the 3.x line, forbidding
us to alter, or add any non-{{default}} interface methods to those extension points, so these
pose a problem.
> Depending on logistics, expecting to get this done in time for 3.4 or 3.6 feature release.
