Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-5124) A few optimizations to FsNamesystem#RecentInvalidateSets
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2009 01:21:59 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Hairong Kuang updated HADOOP-5124:

    Attachment: optimizeInvalidate2.patch

This patch incorporates Konstantin's first comment.

As for (3), I am not clear how to evaluate the optimization. The goal of the new strategy
is not to improve performance. Instead it aims to give fairness to all nodes when computing
invalidation work. The current strategy always favors the ones in the beginning of the map
since recentInvalidateSets is a TreeMap so it is sorted. Another flaw is that after the first
node is scheduled, the node is reinserted into the map if it still has remaining blocks. Since
it becomes the first node again, next call of invalidateWorkForOneNode will work on the same
node again. The current strategy would work fine if recentInvalidateSets is a FIFO queue.

> This jira proposes a few optimization to FsNamesystem#RecentInvalidateSets:
> 1. when removing all replicas of a block, it does not traverse all nodes in the map.
Instead it traverse only the nodes that the block is located.
> 2. When dispatching blocks to datanodes in ReplicationMonitor. It randomly chooses a
predefined number of datanodes and dispatches blocks to those datanodes. This strategy provides
fairness to all datanodes. The current strategy always starts from the first datanode.
