Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-15625) Make minimum values configurable and smaller
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2016 09:03:25 GMT
Jean-Marc Spaggiari created HBASE-15625:
-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Make minimum values configurable and smaller
                 Key: HBASE-15625
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15625
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Jean-Marc Spaggiari
            Priority: Minor


When we start a RS, we check HConstants.HBASE_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_MEMORY_THRESHOLD to make sure
we always keep 20% of the heap for HBase (See below). In the past maximum heap size was about
20GB, which means 4GB for HBase.

Today, with huge heaps and GC1, 20% gives a lot to HBase. Like with 80GB heap, it gives 16GB,
which I think it not required.

We need to make HBASE_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_MEMORY_THRESHOLD configurable and lower it's default
value to 10%. It will not make any difference on any HBase configuration but will allow admins
to be more flexible.

Same thing for the minimum memstore and blockcache sizes.
