Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-3455) Heap fragmentation in region server
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 18:13:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3455?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HBASE-3455:

    Attachment: parse-fls-statistics.py

Here's the python script I use to convert the FLS statistics log into a TSV format for graphing.

I was using the following flags with JVM 6u23:
-XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCDateStamps -XX:+PrintTenuringDistribution -verbose:gc -Xloggc:$HBASE_HOME/logs/gc-$(hostname)-hbase.log
-XX:PrintCMSStatistics=1 -XX:PrintFLSStatistics=1

Might need to fiddle with the regex in the script if you use different flags or a different
JVM release.

> Stop-the-world GC pauses have long been a problem in HBase. "Concurrent mode failures"
can usually be tuned around by setting the initiating occupancy fraction low, but eventually
the heap becomes fragmented and a promotion failure occurs.
