Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7966) New Data Transfer Protocol via HTTP/2
Date Mon, 20 Jul 2015 06:34:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7966?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14633089#comment-14633089

Duo Zhang commented on HDFS-7966:

Write a single threaded testcase that do all the test works inside event loop.


And at server side, I remove the thread pool in {{ReadBlockHandler}}.

The result is
******* time based on tcp 17734ms
******* time based on http2 20019ms

******* time based on tcp 18878ms
******* time based on http2 21422ms

******* time based on tcp 17562ms
******* time based on http2 20568ms

******* time based on tcp 18726ms
******* time based on http2 20251ms

******* time based on tcp 18632ms
******* time based on http2 21227ms

The average time of original tcp is 18306.4ms, and HTTP/2 is 20697.4ms. 

20697.4 / 18306.4 = 1.13, so HTTP/2 is 13% slower than tcp. In the above test it is 30% slower,
so I think context switch maybe one of the problem why HTTP/2 is much slower than tcp. Will
do this test on a real cluster to get more data.

And the one {{EventLoop}} per datanode problem, I think it is a problem on a small cluster.
So I think we should allow creating multiple HTTP/2 connections to one datanode. I will modify
{{Http2ConnectionPool}} and do the test again.

> The current Data Transfer Protocol (DTP) implements a rich set of features that span
across multiple layers, including:
> * Connection pooling and authentication (session layer)
> * Encryption (presentation layer)
> * Data writing pipeline (application layer)
> All these features are HDFS-specific and defined by implementation. As a result it requires
non-trivial amount of work to implement HDFS clients and servers.
> This jira explores to delegate the responsibilities of the session and presentation layers
to the HTTP/2 protocol. Particularly, HTTP/2 handles connection multiplexing, QoS, authentication
and encryption, reducing the scope of DTP to the application layer only. By leveraging the
existing HTTP/2 library, it should simplify the implementation of both HDFS clients and servers.
