> In the current implementation, the server handler thread picks up an item from the incoming
callqueue, processes it and then wraps the response as a Writable and sends it back to the
IPC server module. This wastes thread-resources when the thread is blocked for disk IO (transaction
logging, read into block cache, etc).
> It would be nice if we can make the RPC Server Handler threads pick up a call from the
IPC queue, hand it over to the application (e.g. HRegion), the application can queue it to
be processed asynchronously and send a response back to the IPC server module saying that
the response is not ready. The RPC Server Handler thread is now ready to pick up another request
from the incoming callqueue. When the queued call is processed by the application, it indicates
to the IPC module that the response is now ready to be sent back to the client.
> The RPC client continues to experience the same behaviour as before. A RPC client is
synchronous and blocks till the response arrives.
> This RPC enhancement allows us to do very powerful things with the RegionServer. In future,
we can make enhance the RegionServer's threading model to a message-passing model for better
performance. We will not be limited by the number of threads in the RegionServer.
