Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3411) [Storage implementation] explore the native HBase write schema for storage
Date Fri, 15 May 2015 00:55:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-3411?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14544692#comment-14544692

Joep Rottinghuis commented on YARN-3411:

Ok, admitted that I have not yet read Sangjin's comments from just minutes ago.
I also need to spend some more time to fully read and comprehend the key structure.

Here is an initial set of comments that I have, please take them for that they are worth.
I'll have to spend more time to dig into more details.

Overall, we should fill in the javadoc, describe inputs, explain what we expect etc.

EntityColumnDetails probably needs a public static method

public static EntityColumnDetails createEntityColumnDetails(byte[] bytes)
that will take bytes, iterates over the enum and returns an enum from those bytes.
You'll need to decide if you want a default, or throw an exception if bytes does not map to
any enum.


getRowKeyPrefix should cleanse input arguments to strip EntityTableDetails.ROW_KEY_SEPARATOR_BYTES
(at least the string representative of that, may be good to split that definition into two).
The reverse method that takes a rowkey and splits into components should probably not reverse
For example, if we use a ! for separator and translate that to underscore, do we translate
all underscores back to bangs?
In hRaven we did not, but stripping the separators is essential to avoid parsing errors during

Instead of just using DEFAULT_ENTITY_TABLE_NAME or overriding the tablename itself,
it will be super-usefull to be able to have one single config key to prefix all tables.
This way you can easily run a staging, a test, a production and whatever setup in the same
HBase instance / w/o having to override every single table in the config.
One could simply overwrite the default prefix and you're off and running.
For prefix I'm thinking "tst" "prod" "exp" etc. Once can then still override one tablename
if needed,
but managing one whole setup will be easier.

For column prefixes, are you simply using a one character prefix, and the first character
is always a prefix?
Or do we need to do cleansing on the columns written to ensure that nobody else will write
with this
column prefix?
Also, if there is a prefix, why not make this an enum?

More general question: for TimelineWriter and its implementations, is there an expectation
set around
concurrency? Is any synchronization expected / needed to ensure visibility when calls happen
from different threads?
How about entities, are they expected to be immutable once passed to the write method?
Similarly for the constructor, we're assuming that the configuration object will not be modified
while we're constructing a TimelineWriter?

For the write method in HBaseTimelineWriterImpl, we're collecting all the puts first, then
we're creating a big list of entity puts, and then we're writing them out.
For large entities (with large configurations) we end up creating two (if not three I'd have
to read more carefully) copies of the entire structure.
Wouln't it be better to do this in somewhat more of a streaming manner?
For example, first create info puts, then stream those out to the entityTable, then drop the
infoPuts Put,
then move on to eventPut, configPut etc.

Even method like getConfigPut could conceivable by constructed in such a way that we don't
have to create one massive copy of the config in a single Put.
Perhaps we can pass in the table and create smaller puts, perhaps even one per config key
and stream those out.
Ditto when iterating over the timeseries.keySet() in getMetricsPut.

For serviceStop we should probably handle things a littlebit better than just calling close.
Are we expecting to just close the HBase connection, still keep writing and just let the write
exceptions shoot up to the top of the writing process?
Should we occasionally ( as we're iterating) check the stop method and just bail out in a
more elegant way?

On class range, the start and end are final right?

> There is work that's in progress to implement the storage based on a Phoenix schema (YARN-3134).
> In parallel, we would like to explore an implementation based on a native HBase schema
for the write path. Such a schema does not exclude using Phoenix, especially for reads and
offline queries.
> Once we have basic implementations of both options, we could evaluate them in terms of
performance, scalability, usability, etc. and make a call.
