Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-745) scaling of one regionserver, improving memory and cpu usage
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2008 17:41:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-745?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12616962#action_12616962

stack commented on HBASE-745:
-----------------------------

Hey Billy:  Yeah, it was committed a while back.   In my comments above, I'm not very enthusiastic
because I did not see BIG gains in our simple PerformanceEvaluation.  But thinking on it more,
Luo Ning's simple rule is kinda elegant and in real-life situations is probably saving truckloads
of CPU and I/O.

>             Project: Hadoop HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: regionserver
>    Affects Versions: 0.1.3, 0.2.0
>         Environment: hadoop 0.17.1
>            Reporter: Luo Ning
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: hbase-745-for-0.2.patch, HBASE-745.compact.patch

> after weeks testing hbase 0.1.3 and hadoop(0.16.4, 0.17.1), i found there are many works
to do,  before a particular regionserver can handle data about 100G, or even more. i'd share
my opions here with stack, and other developers.
> first, the easiest way improving scalability of regionserver is upgrading hardware, use
64bit os and 8G memory for the regionserver process, and speed up disk io. 
> besides hardware, following are software bottlenecks i found in regionserver:
> 1. as data increasing, compaction was eating cpu(with io) times, the total compaction
time is basicly linear relative to whole data size, even worse, sometimes square relavtive
to that size.
> 2. memory usage are depends on opened mapfiles
> 3. network connection are depends on opened mapfiles, see HADOOP-2341 and HBASE-24.
