Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3974) Client: Ability to Discard Bad HTable Puts
Date Fri, 10 Jun 2011 23:44:58 GMT

Dave Latham commented on HBASE-3974:
------------------------------------

Thanks for taking on this issue, Nicolas.

I think it's good to change the default behavior for a synchronous Put to not hang around
in the write buffer.  However, I also think the default behavior for when a client calls flushCommits
should be that the buffered commits are successfully committed, or an exception is thrown.

What do you think about using a separate setClearBufferOnFail method rather than overloading
setAutoFlush?

> While debugging an application consistency issue, we noticed that a single, synchronous
Put request threw a NoServerForRegionException but eventually succeeded 90 seconds later.
 The problem is that failed put requests are not actually removed from the HTable's writeBuffer.
 This makes sense for asynchronous puts using setAutoFlush(false) but don't make sense for
the default case where we expect synchronous operation.  We should discard all failed puts
for the synchronous case and provide an API so asynchronous requests can have their failed
puts cleared.
