Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-8696) Reduce the variances of latency of WebHDFS
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:06:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8696?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14726293#comment-14726293

Bob Hansen commented on HDFS-8696:

With the patched hdfs, we're still seeing slowdowns.

For the 1-byte reads:
99.7% of requests have an average latency of 4.5ms
0.3% of requests have an average latency of 870 ms (selected for latency > 500ms)

So we're spending 34% of our wall-clock time waiting for the slow reads.  This is better than
the unpatched 2.2.6, but still a bit rough.

Running the same experiment against gave 0 reads at more than 500ms.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: webhdfs
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.0
>            Reporter: Xiaobing Zhou
>            Assignee: Xiaobing Zhou
>         Attachments: HDFS-8696.1.patch, HDFS-8696.2.patch, HDFS-8696.3.patch
> There is an issue that appears related to the webhdfs server. When making two concurrent
requests, the DN will sometimes pause for extended periods (I've seen 1-300 seconds), killing
performance and dropping connections. 
> To reproduce: 
> 1. set up a HDFS cluster
> 2. Upload a large file (I was using 10GB). Perform 1-byte reads, writing
> the time out to /tmp/times.txt
> {noformat}
> i=1
> while (true); do 
> echo $i
> let i++
> /usr/bin/time -f %e -o /tmp/times.txt -a curl -s -L -o /dev/null "http://<namenode>:50070/webhdfs/v1/tmp/bigfile?op=OPEN&user.name=root&length=1";
> done
> {noformat}
> 3. Watch for 1-byte requests that take more than one second:
> tail -F /tmp/times.txt | grep -E "^[^0]"
> 4. After it has had a chance to warm up, start doing large transfers from
> another shell:
> {noformat}
> i=1
> while (true); do 
> echo $i
> let i++
> (/usr/bin/time -f %e curl -s -L -o /dev/null "http://<namenode>:50070/webhdfs/v1/tmp/bigfile?op=OPEN&user.name=root");
> done
> {noformat}
> It's easy to find after a minute or two that small reads will sometimes
> pause for 1-300 seconds. In some extreme cases, it appears that the
> transfers timeout and the DN drops the connection.
