Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-14576) New HFile version for optimized reverse scans
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2015 00:28:27 GMT
Ben Lau created HBASE-14576:

             Summary: New HFile version for optimized reverse scans
                 Key: HBASE-14576
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14576
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ben Lau
            Assignee: Ben Lau

A new ticket to finish the work from HBASE-14283, which will fix the HFileReader seekBefore()
previous block size calculation bug but make the resulting reverse scan take more I/O than
a forward scan.  

Fixing the bug in the long term requires an HFile version bump, either major or minor.  We
will put the previous block's size in the HFileBlock header instead of trying to calculate
it directly using block offset arithmetic.  

Per [~anoop.hbase]'s suggestion, I created this ticket so that we can separate the issue of
fixing the bug (the responsibility of HBASE-14283) and the issue of getting reverse scans
to run quickly (the responsibility of this ticket).  It is also unlikely that this ticket
will be backported to old versions of HBase eg 0.98 whereas HBASE-14283 can be.
