Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "Hbase/FAQ" by MaximVeksler
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2010 18:23:51 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The "Hbase/FAQ" page has been changed by MaximVeksler.


  '''''hbase''' is the user under which HBase is running''. To test the configuration reboot
and run '''ulimit -n'''
- You may also need to edit /etc/sysctl.conf, relevant configuration '''fs.file-max''' See

  The math runs roughly as follows: Per column family, there is at least one mapfile and possibly
up to 5 or 6 if a region is under load (lets say 3 per column family on average).  Multiply
by the number of regions per region server.  So, for example, say you have a schema of 3 column
familes per region and that you have 100 regions per regionserver, the JVM will open 3 * 3
* 100 mapfiles -- 900 file descriptors not counting open jar files, conf files, etc (Run 'lsof
-p REGIONSERVER_PID' to see for sure).
