Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-3588) Proposal to optimize ReadWriteConsistencyControl
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2011 08:20:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3588?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13001329#comment-13001329

ryan rawson commented on HBASE-3588:

interesting idea, this needs to fit in the context of the acid work stack is doing.  In the
discussion of that issue, it turned out that we were required to always read from the most
recent read point between each row. 

How much time is this saving?  It was expected that a memstore insertion would be REALLY fast.
 Now with the MemstoreLAB stuff, that might not be so true anymore...

> The ReadWriteConsistencyControl (RWCC) mechanism facilitates making a set of memstore
updates atomically visible to readers. Also, the rwcc.completeMemstoreInsert() blocks till
the memstore read point advances to the current writeNumber. This is done to ensure that if
an application that does a put immediately issues a new get call for the same key, then the
get should see the values inserted by the previous call to put. The current implementation
assumes this worst-case and penalizes the put rpc to not return to the client until the read
point advances to this transaction's write number.
> In many use-cases, the application never actually issues a get for the most recent put
that it inserted. In this case, it would be nice if we can transfer the penalty (of blocking)
to the get call that follows the initial put.
