Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3984) Rethink event column key issue

Vrushali C commented on YARN-3984:

Hi Zhijie,

bq. the current query we want to support now (in YARN-3051 and YARN-3049) is to retrieve all
events belonging to an entity (e.g. application, attempt, container and etc.).
Yes, "fetch all events" query is supported with all types of row key designs. Fetching all
events is not affected by the row key order. The reader would construct a set /list of TimelineEvents
in any case and then sort them in the code. The timestamp will help in ordering but you don't
know when to stop the scan, so all events belonging to all timestamps have to be fetched and
sorting and filtering out latest events has to be done in the code in any case when we fetch
all events. 

bq.  In this case, the most efficient way is to put timestamp even before the event ID, so
that we don't need to order the events in memory
This would mean that we would *never* be able to query for a specific event. We would *always*
have to fetch all events belonging to all timestamps and perform client side filtering. 

I see the point about the info map being empty/null. I will add a case to store event id and
timestamp when the info map is null.

> Currently, the event column key is event_id?info_key?timestamp, which is not so friendly
to fetching all the events of an entity and sorting them in a chronologic order. IMHO, timestamp?event_id?info_key
may be a better key schema. I open this jira to continue the discussion about it which was
commented on YARN-3908.
