Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-24) [hbase] Scaling: Too many open file handles to datanodes
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 23:21:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-24?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jim Kellerman updated HBASE-24:
-------------------------------

    Priority: Critical  (was: Major)

Changing priority to Critical to emphasize that this is one of the major roadblocks to scalability
that we have.

And the problem is not only on the number of connections the region servers have open to the
dfs, but also include datanode connections for each open file.

> We've been here before (HADOOP-2341).
> Today the rapleaf gave me an lsof listing from a regionserver.  Had thousands of open
sockets to datanodes all in ESTABLISHED and CLOSE_WAIT state.  On average they seem to have
about ten file descriptors/sockets open per region (They have 3 column families IIRC.  Per
family, can have between 1-5 or so mapfiles open per family -- 3 is max... but compacting
we open a new one, etc.).
> They have thousands of regions.   400 regions -- ~100G, which is not that much -- takes
about 4k open file handles.
> If they want a regionserver to server a decent disk worths -- 300-400G -- then thats
maybe 1600 regions... 16k file handles.  If more than just 3 column families..... then we
are in danger of blowing out limits if they are 32k.
> We've been here before with HADOOP-2341.
> A dfsclient that used non-blocking i/o would help applications like hbase (The datanode
doesn't have this problem as bad -- CLOSE_WAIT on regionserver side, the bulk of the open
fds in the rapleaf log, don't have a corresponding open resource on datanode end).
> Could also just open mapfiles as needed, but that'd kill our random read performance
and its bad enough already.
