Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1892) [performance] make hbase splits run faster
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 00:36:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1892?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12791697#action_12791697

stack commented on HBASE-1892:

Here are some observations by J-D from a recent (offlist) mail:

So, the way it currently works, you should expect pauses of 6 to 10
seconds every time there's a split. If the system has more load, it
can take a bit longer. This is "how it works" in the current master
architecture... [to be changed in 0.21 hbase -- St.Ack]. This configuration:

   <description>Interval between messages from the RegionServer to HMaster
   in milliseconds.  Default is 3 seconds.

makes it that every split takes up to 3 second to report to master and then
3 more seconds for the master to assign the new regions. Coupled with
that is the client retries backoff. In HConnectionManager we wait
hbase.client.pause (default 2 secs) times

public static int RETRY_BACKOFF[] = { 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, 8, 16, 32 };

in order. So for a split you wait 2 + 2 + 2 seconds in the client. If
for some reason it took longer to split, you will wait 6+2*2=10
seconds (or more).


A couple of notes on the above.

Not so long ago I changed the regionserver so that as soon as it had a message, it'd send
the master and not wait on the hbase.regionserver.msginterval to elapse.

My guess is that if more than one regionserver, rare would be the case when we would have
to wait 3 seconds to send out the assignment of daughters -- my guess is that a regionserver
would check in well before then.

But then there is the open of the region and informing master.

Maybe we should add to the RETRY_BACKOFF a bunch more 1s at the start... and maybe down the
hbase.client.pause default from 2 seconds to 1.
