Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-728) Supporting for HLog appends
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2008 06:36:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-728?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12611469#action_12611469

Billy Pearson commented on HBASE-728:

The Major item needing appends in HBase is HLog so we can handle crashed regional servers
with out data loss. Currently we could lose up to 30K updates if a server fails.

I was thanking we should maybe thank of something like mysql does with innodb database

1 = HLog buffer is flushed to disk with each update.
2 = HLog buffer is flushed to disk once per second or every x secs.
3 = HLog buffer is flushed to disk when reached x size.

Clearly option 1 would be slower per update as we would have to append to the file with each
change but that would allow us an option to have zero data loss and options 2-3 would give
users option to chose how much data lose would be acceptable for a performance increase.
