Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2468) Improvements to prewarm META cache on clients

Mingjie Lai commented on HBASE-2468:
------------------------------------

I'm looking at this issue right now, and want to provide a patch it as a warmup. 

My plan is to add a new HConnectionManager::locateRegionInMeta() which is dedicated for .META.
table. It keeps the features of the original version (locate region for a table+row pair),
in addition it puts all this table's region info to local cache by usig MetaScanner.

> A couple different use cases cause storms of reads to META during startup. For example,
a large MR job will cause each map task to hit meta since it starts with an empty cache.
> A couple possible improvements have been proposed:
>  - MR jobs could ship a copy of META for the table in the DistributedCache
>  - Clients could prewarm cache by doing a large scan of all the meta for the table instead
of random reads for each miss
>  - Each miss could fetch ahead some number of rows in META
