Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-10278) Provide better write predictability
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2014 00:58:56 GMT
Himanshu Vashishtha created HBASE-10278:

             Summary: Provide better write predictability
                 Key: HBASE-10278
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10278
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Himanshu Vashishtha

Currently, HBase has one WAL per region server. 
Whenever there is any latency in the write pipeline (due to whatever reasons such as n/w blip,
a node in the pipeline having a bad disk, etc), the overall write latency suffers. 

Jonathan Hsieh and I analyzed various approaches to tackle this issue. We also looked at HBASE-5699,
which talks about adding concurrent multi WALs. Along with performance numbers, we also focussed
on design simplicity, minimum impact on MTTR & Replication, and compatibility with 0.96
and 0.98. Considering all these parameters, we propose a new HLog implementation with WAL
Switching functionality.

Please find attached the design doc for the same. It introduces the WAL Switching feature,
and experiments/results of a prototype implementation, showing the benefits of this feature.
The second goal of this work is to serve as a building block for concurrent multiple WALs

Please review the doc.
