scaling of one regionserver, improving memory and cpu usage

                 Key: HBASE-745
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-745
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: regionserver
    Affects Versions: 0.1.3
         Environment: hadoop 0.17.1
            Reporter: LN
            Priority: Minor

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
2. memory and socket connection usage are depends on opened mapfiles, see HADOOP-2341 and

will explain above in comments later.
