Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2990) It's possible for regions to not be major compacted for more than hbase.hregion.majorcompaction
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2010 00:25:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2990?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12909065#action_12909065

Jonathan Gray commented on HBASE-2990:

Not sure if this is related to this jira but in a cluster doing almost exclusively increment
write operations, performance slowly degrades significantly over time.  Major compacting seems
to restore everything back to normal performance.  There doesn't seem to be a large build-up
of number of files but it just goes really slow.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2990
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Jean-Daniel Cryans
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 0.90.0
> This is something I've seen here since we upgraded to 0.89 since Gets are now Scans,
although I don't currently have any strong evidence that it wasn't happening in 0.20.
> I saw this when we began getting alerts on the frontend that some requests were taking
more than 8 seconds to complete. Even getting a value could take more than 3 minutes in the
shell. The first thing I did was major compacting the table that was slow and the problem
went away immediately. Looking in the logs, it seems the compaction transformed 2 files of
(total) 550MB into 5.2MB. Looking back in the logs for September, it appears that that table
was never major compacted and was slowly growing everyday. Some more grepping around showed
that quite a few regions were never major compacted.
> I'm still looking at the code, but the issue seems to be that the minor compactions are
always happening on all store files more than once per day on certain regions, meaning that
the oldest timestamp is always smaller than hbase.hregion.majorcompaction and major compactions
are never triggered.
