Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1293) Concurrency Model for Hive
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 21:50:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1293?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12901609#action_12901609

John Sichi commented on HIVE-1293:

Oops, ant test is giving me this build error:

    [javac] /data/users/jsichi/open/commit-trunk/ql/src/test/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/QTestUtil.java:939:
cannot find symbol
    [javac] symbol  : class MiniZooKeeperCluster
    [javac] location: class org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.QTestUtil.QTestSetup
    [javac]     private MiniZooKeeperCluster zooKeeperCluster = null;
    [javac]             ^

I had only moved zookeeper-3.2.2.jar from hbase-handler/lib to top-level lib (but not the
hbase-*.jar).  I guess we need to move all of them.

> Concurrency model for Hive:
> Currently, hive does not provide a good concurrency model. The only guanrantee provided
in case of concurrent readers and writers is that
> reader will not see partial data from the old version (before the write) and partial
data from the new version (after the write).
> This has come across as a big problem, specially for background processes performing
maintenance operations.
> The following possible solutions come to mind.
> 1. Locks: Acquire read/write locks - they can be acquired at the beginning of the query
or the write locks can be delayed till move
> task (when the directory is actually moved). Care needs to be taken for deadlocks.
> 2. Versioning: The writer can create a new version if the current version is being read.
Note that, it is not equivalent to snapshots,
> the old version can only be accessed by the current readers, and will be deleted when
all of them have finished.
