Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1124) Balancer kicks in way too early
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2009 18:58:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12663421#action_12663421

stack commented on HBASE-1124:

Looking at Andrew's logs, you're both 'right'.

Yes, balancer doesn't cut in till regions are all assigned only, when big cluster there is
a big gap between all assigned and all open.  In this gap, I see in Andrew's log the balancer
cutting in.  We don't want it working here while all regionservers have a big queue of region
opens that they are currently working on.

Here is an example.

All regions have been handed out and master is just waiting on the opens to come in.

Above we are closing 'content,afebbf5e615585830ebe6f74e1014f3d,1231766212960' which had just
opened 3 seconds earlier.  About 5% of all regions assigned have reported back as opened.
 We shouldn't be balancing at this time.

> Balancer kicks in before all regions are assigned out. Causes confusion. Master won't
accept OPENs from "overloaded" HRS. Master is slow to respond to UI and HRS during. Master
sometimes takes too long to respond to a HRS heartbeat and so the HRS will reinit. This causes
more confusion.
