Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-3455) Heap fragmentation in region server
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2011 05:55:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3455?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12989524#comment-12989524

stack commented on HBASE-3455:


Minors below:

On commit, I wonder if you should commit w/ it disabled on branch but enabled on trunk?

In here:
+    // Use the internalAdd method here since we (a) already have a lock
+    // and (b) cannot safely use the MSLAB here.
+    // See TestMemStore.DISABLED_testUpsertMSLAB

... its not safe because it would bloat memory?  Or is it some thread 'safety' issue?  Maybe
clarify on commit?

Should this class even be public?

+public class MemStoreLAB {

Why this?

+    if (size > maxAlloc) {
+      return new Allocation(new byte[size], 0);
+    }

On return we'll clone when we don't need to?  Return null as flag that we're not to clone?
 (Caller is maybeCloneWithAllocator).

We should open new issue for fixing upsert?

> 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.
> This JIRA is to do research/experiments about the heap fragmentation issue and possible
